Bill has spent his career helping people make just the right connections to achieve their goals. So, it only makes sense that he’s put those talents to work at LeConte Realty where he’s connecting his clients with just the right residential and commercial properties.
Raised in Bristol, Virginia, Bill earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Bluefield College in Bluefield, Virginia. After college, he spent three years as a collegiate admissions director in Virginia before relocating to Blount County in 1999.
Bill spent time working in higher education administration with students at Maryville College and Pellissippi State Community College, including three years as the Dean of Pellissippi State’s Blount County campus. After 16 years on college campuses, he joined the Blount Partnership as Director of Economic & Workforce Development. At the Partnership, Bill’s primary focus was the recruitment of business and industry to Blount County, as well as managing the existing industry and chamber VIP programs.
A sense of community is very important to Bill. He is a 2005 graduate of Leadership Blount, a 2009 graduate of the East Tennessee Regional Leadership Association, and a graduate and former board member of Experience Your Smokies. He also served as President of the East Tennessee Industrial Council and on the board of directors for the Blount County Literacy Council, Blount County Library Foundation, and United Way of Blount County, where he served as 2015 Campaign Chair and had the honor of working with a group of dedicated staff and volunteers to raise more than $2 million dollars for our community.
Bill and his wife, Jodi, have one daughter. In their free time, they enjoy camping, geocaching, auto racing, and being with their great family and friends.
