He has been instrumental in our transformation strategy, redefining our brand and value proposition to our targeted segments of Metal Fabrication and Industrial Production,” noted Weiler. “I’m confident in Bill’s leadership and know he will continue to help us build strong partnerships and deliver great products and innovative solutions that drive profitable growth for us and our business partners.”

He holds a bachelor of arts in engineering from Lafayette College and a master’s in business administration from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
