By Shane Pierce
(L-R) Adam Cumby, Bill Cumby, Jr., Bill Cumby, III

W.S. Cumby Construction is proud to formally enter its third generation of leadership with William (Bill) Cumby, III taking on the role of President and CEO from William (Bill) Cumby, Jr., who will take on the role of Chairman.

This transition of leadership has been in process since Bill Jr and Bill, III began co-managing the business two and half years ago, and both are excited to announce the formal transition of the leadership role.

“Bill is an absolute leader and I have total confidence in Bill’s ability to lead this incredibly talented team to greater heights than ever and plan to support him in that effort,” Bill, Jr. said. “I could not be more proud to pass the torch to the next generation. And like my father did years ago when he became Chairman and passed the role of President/CEO to me, I plan to continue to be involved and support the company in the future for as long as I’m able to make a contribution.”

Bill, III is keen to lead the company into the future while maintaining its vision and core values of Integrity, Partnership and Commitment. “I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to step into this role and am committed to pursuing the vision that Bill Sr. and Bill Jr. created with renewed energy, urgency, hunger and perseverance. I have very big shoes to fill and I am looking forward to the challenge.”
