Bill is a former Army Officer and has been involved in the brewing industry since 1985.
As Chief Executive of the International Brewers’ Guild, a role that drew on his people and management skills together with his team-building expertise, Bill’s position enabled him to assemble an extensive network of global contacts at all levels in the drinks industry.
In 2001, following the merger of the International Brewers Guild and the Institute of Brewing, Bill and Julie Carling saw an opportunity for a niche search and selection company specialising in their area of expertise, the brewing and drinks industry, and The Carling Partnership was formed.
Bill operates in close partnership with our major clients at a senior level across a wide variety of strategic assignments. He travels internationally meeting with clients and candidates to develop personal relationships and build upon CPL’s growing reputation as a key partner in the recruitment process.
