|Bill joined the NHGA Board of Directors in 2006 and became its President in November of 2012. Bill was born in Camden, NJ in 1950 but moved at a very young age to Franklin, NH and graduated from Franklin High School in 1967. Bill played on the golf team all four years while in high school as the seventh man on a six-man team.
Bill graduated from Case Institute of Technology in 1971 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has spent the majority of his career in the Pulp and Paper Industry working for various equipment manufacturers. Bill did take a few years off from Pulp and Paper as an owner of a packaged ice company and after selling that business the owner of a lumber and hardware facility. Bill currently covers the Northeast for a company out of the Cincinnati, Ohio area that provides equipment to recycled paper mills.
After high school Bill did not play golf again until he sold his ice company in 1986. Eleven years into his marriage, Bill’s wife never knew Bill knew what a golf club was until he joined Concord Country Club in Concord, NH, Bill’s current home town.
Bill’s passion for the game grew quickly and at his best carried a 5 handicap. Bill realized that he wanted to give back to the game as much as he wanted to play. To this end he joined the Concord Country Club Board of Directors in 1992 and has served off and on since then. Bill also joined the McDonough Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors in 1996 and continues to serve on that Board. McDonough provides approximately $100,000 in annual scholarships to employees of golf clubs throughout New Hampshire.
