William E. Hay

September 21, 1943 - July 15, 2018

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Bill Hay's passing on July 15th. Friends and colleagues remember Bill as a trusted advisor, an aficionado of organization design, an incredible communicator, a frustrated golfer, a man of detail, having an infectious laugh, and for his great insight and generosity with board work and charitable endeavors. Bill was a gentleman. He always had time for a cup of coffee. Per his wishes, the firm will continue to serve clients with the same professional standards and personal touch for which he was so well known and appreciated.
