He has extensive experience in M&A, financial modeling and operational planning, in addition to proven skills in developing strategies that build and sustain growth.

Prior to joining Agero, Bill filled the CFO role at several Boston-area technology companies. Most recently, he was CFO at OnProcess Technology, a tech-enabled services company focused on the after-market service supply chain. Prior to that, Bill held various finance-related leadership positions at Sparta Systems, NMS Communications, Infinium Software and others.
