Bill’s expertise and long-standing involvement in the construction industry was the nucleus and backbone that was needed to initiate Garrison Woods. Bill started in the business in the early 1950’s when he helped put an addition on Maryknoll Seminary in Ossining. He was recruited to join a roofing contractor as an estimator and went on to become the President of the company as well as President of several trade associations. Bill’s reputation as a reliable contractor has stayed with him enabling Garrison Woods to initialize accounts with suppliers, sub-contractors and new clients. Bill still serves the company diligently as a consultant and estimating and the experience and vast knowledge of the company is valued greatly by Robert.
