“In March 2016, Bill assumed leadership of Swift Communications as the company’s CEO. Waters was appointed CFO of Swift Communications Inc. in 2011. Prior to that, he held the post of Controller and Director of Operating Finance since 2001. He served as Business Manager of The Union in Grass Valley, Calif., from 1990 to 2001, and as Circulation Manager of The Union from 1985 to 1990 and various other circulation positions prior to that. Waters has over 36 years in the newspaper and communications industries.

“Waters holds a B.S. degree in Accounting from California State University, Sacramento.”

A quote is included from Bill: ““Working for Swift is like diving into a box of chocolates: some days are really sweet & delicious, others are just nuts. The good news is: the former outnumber the latter.”
