Before leading Werner’s pric- ing and data teams, Bill
spent 10 years leading the CDC,
where he revolutionized many
processes while gaining trust and
credibility with internal and external customers.
“Over the past 12 years,
Werner owes a large part of its
success to Bill,” was written on
his nomination form. “He is ex-
tremely interested to know what
problems exist in our system and
goes out of his way to understand
and correct those problems with
the best possible solutions.”
Notably, Bill’s team captured
99.8% of the ship and debits
rebates, which equates to more
than $20 million directly to Werner’s bottom line; he increased
an average of 4% gross profit on
a top vendor line; and he created
a sustainable quality assurance
program that encompasses all
aspects of Werner’s operations.
