So sorry for the loss of Bill. CBA is a rep. firm for Littelfuse in Boston that Bill would often visit for the past 9 years. When we picked Bill up at Logan Airport , Bill would bring with him his suitcase and a lifetime of knowledge about the components we shared, their applications but most importantly his care for the customer and his diligence to offer the right solution. Bill was always playing the "long game" with the customer which is to say he felt that if you give the customer great service, no matter the immediate consequence, as long as the customer received the result then we would win. Bill was so right! Bill in relatively short period of time became an important resource in how we performed our day to day responsibilities. Customers loved to see Bill coming because they knew they were going to learn something new. Reps loved to travel with Bill because it made their job easier and we would often get complemented for just bringing Bill into the conversation. I am sure we all regret not being able to say thank you for all he has done. Best Wishes to Bill's Family and I am sure you know but as a "Voice from the Road", as he spoke of you often, Bill loved you all very much .
