His responsibilities included developing and implementing a firm-wide technology strategy, as well as leading the effort to reduce the technology run rate by $150 million, which yielded net savings after the reinvestment of $100 million through shared services.
Bill was CTO for Thomson Financial from 2005 to 2008, where he led the technology and content product organizations. During his tenure, customer retention increased by significantly improving the availability and responsiveness of business-critical products. He also helped improve profitability by aligning resources to the more profitable product lines.
From 2000 to 2005, Bill served as CTO for Citigroup’s Global Investment Management strategic business unit that included the asset management, alternative investments, private banking, retirement services, and life & annuity businesses. In that role, he was responsible for both technology and business operations. Prior to Citigroup, he served as the first Enterprise CIO for AIG. Rounding out his financial services experience, Bill served as CIO for several GE Capital companies early in his career.
Bill started his career by spending 11 years as a consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture, in the Advanced Systems Group. His clients included several companies in the retail, government, technology, and telecommunications markets.
