First awarded in 1962, the Roll of Fame recognizes CHA alumni who have made significant contributions to society. In choosing members of the Roll of Fame, the Alumni Association weighs a candidate’s respect among his peers, where he is considered an expert in his field, and whether his work has had an effect that reaches beyond the bounds of a single community.
While Bill currently goes by the title Head of Real Estate at Spring Creek Management and at the Barnes Foundation he was known as an Independent Project Manager, his skills and the magic he brings to any project belie these monikers. In fact, his keen ability to manage many people, constituents, and designs was supremely evident in his most public project to date: the building of Barnes Foundation. It sits majestically on Ben Franklin Parkway, as if it has been there forever. But if anyone can tell you that its mere existence is nothing less than a miracle, it is Bill. Thanks to him and several other miracle workers, the Barnes Foundation is one of Philadelphia’s crowning jewels.
