I have very fond recollections of Bill from our time working together at the SEC. I owe my career success to Bill. When he was Chief Counsel, he selected me as Deputy Chief Counsel. I joked that this was not an example of the old boys' network; in fact, I didn't share his interests (cars and sports, especially University of Maryland sports) at all, so we really didn't have much in common besides securities law! Nevertheless we got on very well. He was always well-informed, practical, and cheerful.

He supported my efforts to learn and to train others. He was a great role model. He was one of the most respected authorities on securities regulation, and was constantly called on by staff members and outsiders alike, but he didn't let the pressure get to him. I always thought that Bill had a good work/life balance, and when he left the office, he was able to stop thinking about work and focus on his family, friends, and leisure activities. He seemed to really enjoy his retirement, and I wish he had been able to do so for many more years.

Bill was an inspiring teacher and mentor to young attorneys as the SEC. Everyone who worked with him owes him so much.
