This annual award, which honors new offices with exceptional top-line growth during their first six months of operation, was presented at the PrideStaff Annual Conference in New Orleans.

With decades of legal, executive management and staffing experience, Bill is passionate about making a positive impact on both businesses and individuals in the central Ohio community that his family has been a part of for more than twenty years. He credits PrideStaff’s proven processes, national resources and strong business relationships for the amazing results his office has achieved.
