His final four years were spent as ServiceMaster’s Director of Commercial Restoration where he worked on the Pentagon recovery project and led the company’s 2004 and 2005 hurricane response efforts.
Wills is a Certified Continuity Manager and a Texas All-Lines Adjuster, as well as a Certifed Continuing Education Instructor in five states. He frequently is asked to speak at leading conferences across many related industries. A graduate of Houghton College, he did his graduate work at Southern Connecticut State University.
