He worked for the same company for 36 years, a period which included two mergers: firstly with Kohler Packaging (the name changed to Kohler Carton and Print) and then with Nampak (becoming Nampak Cartons and Labels).

In 2010 Bill took a break from the corporate lifestyle and joined the privately owned Shave & Gibson Packaging. Over the last 5 years he has enjoyed helping to establish them as a major player in the local folding-carton industry.
