On Bill’s Passing

On December 10, 2018 we lost an incredible leader, colleague and friend. Our President & CEO Bill Carteaux passed away due to complications from acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the disease he had been fighting with determination and courage.

Bill was more than just an inspiring, larger-than-life leader for our industry. Bill was a dear friend to each of us who were lucky to have known him.
