Bill recommends, designs, and leads the implementation of custom IT solutions for Aldridge customers. Bill joined Aldridge in 2013 and has since designed and implemented hundreds of best-fit storage, business continuity, and disaster recovery solutions. He also designed the company’s FileCloud solution package, which gives clients access to their data from any device in the world.
Bill got his start in the IT business with The Harding Group in 1996. His industry experience includes email and storage engineering, Novell instruction, and Microsoft and XIO training. In his first career, he spent a decade as a public school band director.
In his role as a virtual CIO, Bill’s primary concern is helping clients be successful.
“I strive to understand the challenges our clients face,” Bill says. “That way, I can design solutions in a timely manner, with honesty and openness, that fit clients as well as possible and help them achieve their objectives.”
Bill has been asked to speak about storage, business continuity, and disaster recovery for Novell BrainShare, the Texas Association of Governmental Information Technology Managers, and the Texas MHMR forum.
Bill’s certifications include Novell CNE & CNI, Microsoft MCT & MCP, XIO CXE & CXT, DataCore DCSP & DCSA, EMC VSE, and Isilon ICSEA. He has a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
When he’s not designing IT solutions for customers, Bill is heavily involved in music and his church. Bill writes and performs music with community groups and has a passion for growing Christian relationships among men to create community leaders with integrity.
Bill and his wife have two boys and two girls.
