William’s career with us has included serving as a Quality Labor Trainer at Hilldrup’s Stafford headquarters where he trained service teams on how to most efficiently and safely pack and load customers’ goods. He later moved to working in Hilldrup’s Operations department as Senior Local Planner, coordinating the logistics of service teams across local markets to make the most use of our teams’ talents, labor and resources in serving our customers. In 2018, William was promoted to Night Operations Manager. A critical role to the success of our Operations team, William was in charge of preparing all trucks, containers and materials for scheduled jobs in order to expedite the morning dispatch process and prevent avoidable delays. As a result of William’s leadership, organization and agility, Hilldrup’s on-time delivery goals were consistently met for our customers.

Now as Operations Manager, Richmond, William will lead the oversight for all local, commercial and short haul move operations with a focus on quality and delivering outstanding customer service. In this role, he will join Hilldrup Richmond’s award winning team and report to Vice President and General Manager, Steve Norton.

William has been a tremendous asset to our organization – not only as a professional but also as an outstanding person always willing to lend a hand to service teams and customers alike.
