Testimonials:
Bill is a skilled manager and knowledgeable businessman whom I had the benefit of working with for several years. It was Bill who set in motion the "re-engineering" of REMTECH to make the workforce more cohesive, the business more responsive to our client base, and ultimately, the company profitable. He's a sharp individual who approaches things with a "definiteness of purpose" and innovative attitude toward finding success in any endeavor. He earns respect through his management style and is not afraid to make tough decisions. Just as important, when the going gets tough he stands behind his decisions and with his staff.
