Bill Paolillo


A native New Yorker, Bill has held a variety of jobs ranging from taxi driver to general management. Bill believes the equation that drives business success is ER>=CR. Employee Relationships are always greater than or equal to Customer Relationships. People are the difference when creating a safer job site and a better first cost for a customer’s project. People accelerate a project schedule, and provide solutions that enhance operating margins. Bill has more than 25 years of experience as a senior executive at organizations such as Black & Decker, Procter & Gamble, ICI Paints, and McGraw Hill Construction in sales, marketing, operations and general management.  Bill has a doctorate of management from Case Western Reserve University. He is a published author and consultant on the following topics: Lean Construction, Lean EpC, workplace and workforce engagement, and emotional intelligence.

Words to live by:

“Success is the journey, not a destination.  Those who do good do well.”

Q&A session with: Bill Paolillo

What inspires you?

Leading with and co-creating positive connections between the team, partners and clients. The coolest thing you can do in business is to share something with someone, have it make a positive impact on their business and the person’s life, and they pass it on.

Why do you love what you do?

Welty is place that gives everyone Respect, Dignity and Voice. “The truth hurts” – “But does it REALLY?” We believe you never have to be afraid to discuss what you believe is right. A difference of opinion is not a negative but is considered creative conflict – an opportunity to co-create a better solution.
