Bill was born and raised in Gillette, Wyoming. After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in business from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, Bill served three years as an officer in the Navy including a tour of duty in Vietnam.
For the last 35 years, he has worked in the financial services industry beginning with his family's bank in Wyoming. His broad experience as the bank's Investment Officer, President and Director prepared him well for subsequent financial advisor positions with Merrill Lynch, UBS, and Bank of America Investment Services in the DFW Metroplex. At Granite, Bill has been able to provide an even broader spectrum of client services to meet individual needs.
Bill states that "Our clients are very special to us and we want nothing but the best comprehensive services we can provide for them and their families. Our firm is one of great integrity and truly cares about people.” These company attributes are what attracted Bill to become a part of Granite Financial Group.
