Starting his professional career in Atlanta, Georgia, Bill worked for ten years in executive management roles in commercial construction. These companies built city stadiums, hotels, hospitals and other major commercial projects. His efforts brought financial and market prestige for these companies as the projects became successful through his leadership. Through some unique circumstances, Bill started his own commercial construction company, Blane Construction.
Blane Construction company ran successfully for twenty years in the Atlanta area. The rock solid core of the company was founded on strong leadership qualities of integrity, proficiency, and high touch service to his customers which established many quality, repeat clients.

Over the years, Bill has enjoyed working with many seasoned and quality leaders in both the corporate and non profit environments. All these, in turn, have impacted their surrounding community and family for good.
On the home front, he’s busy enjoying his days as an empty-nester with his wife of 35+ years. Bill and his wife, Ann, have 4 children and one grandchild. Family is a joy and core of who he is. When given a chance to just have total fun, he can be found sweating it out in a friendly game of racquetball, perfecting his magical backyard oasis he built with his queen or enjoying a grand baby fix. Bill is staying active and loving life. His major thought is: to live life by loving it! God is his Rock and Heavenly Father. Nothing is better than that for a family legacy to pass on.
