Meet Bill

Bill Ellermeyer

Bill has been working with executives in transition for the past 30 years, helping them to forge a new career path, or in some cases start or even buy a business and develop a “portfolio career” mentality with the ability to use one’s core skills and experience over multiple streams of income. Being involved, getting connected, and staying engaged in work that is inspiring and meaningful is the best way to stay engaged throughout a lifetime of employment.

Bill is one of the most recognized Executive Career Transition Consultants in Southern California, having pioneered the corporate-sponsored career transition business in the early 1980s. Since then, Bill has become a noted speaker who regularly speaks about career management, entrepreneurship, and “un-retirement.” He is a master connector who helps clients build relevant quality contacts, something he believes is the bottom line for every senior executive in transition. Hundreds of Orange County executives over the past 25 years have benefited from Bill’s remarkable talent and solid expertise. In addition to having pioneered the outplacement business with the creation of Career Management Services, Bill participated in the creation of the Association of Professional Consultants, the Global Network, and the Senior Executive Forum.
