Fondest Memory of P.J.W. Restaurant Group
“It was 2005. Owner/CEO Bob Platzer had a conversation with me that would forever change the course of my career path. He asked me to join the company as a member of the executive team in the role of CFO. I would work closely with him and the COO in helping grow what already seemed like a very special organization. The rest is history. I took the job and never once looked back. The company has tripled in sales and more than doubled the number of units since then and the best is yet to come.”
Prior to his current post, he joined a growing public company as a division controller and after only one year rose to become CFO then shortly added the titles of EVP Finance and board member. Before that, he was a corporate controller and board secretary of a publicly held company responsible for all internal and external financial reporting and tax compliance while participating in M&A activities. Bill also served six years as a reservist with the U.S. Army Security Agency.
He started his career as an intern while attending Drexel University with the international accounting firm now branded as Deloitte & Touche. He continued with the firm as a CPA in both the audit and tax departments after graduating from Drexel where he was inducted into the business honorary society.
A Medford, New Jersey resident, Bill enjoys overseas travel with his wife, follows politics, attends grandchildren’s events and frequently hosts his family at a summer home in Ocean City, New Jersey.
