In Washington, William is actively engaged in federal regulatory and policy issues both on Capitol Hill and in the administration.

Before joining BGR, William worked in Georgia Governor Nathan Deal’s Office of Executive Counsel during the 2013 legislative session. He also served on 2012 GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign as Georgia Political Coordinator where he oversaw grassroots operations in the state and also assisted in the campaign’s Southeast Volunteer Deployment Program. From 2007 through 2009, William worked in the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) Finance Department where he founded and managed a donor group for young professionals. In that role, he planned and executed various fundraising events throughout the country with members of Congress as well as the President.
