Bill Wright-Swadel’s commitment to the career development and well-being of individuals has been the foundation of a professional life in the arena of higher education. He has been a senior executive, thought leader, career advocate, individual practitioner, critic, speaker, and occasional poet.

Bill has led career organizations and delivered career services to the students and alumni of a range of exceptional colleges and universities across the US including Harvard, Duke, Dartmouth, the University of Rhode Island, the University of Maine and Bangor Community College, as well as SUNY New Paltz.

The goal has centered on building experiential and full time employment opportunities to ensure productive pipelines for employers and exceptional development for candidates and team members.

Randy Miller, Founder/Chief WHEN Officer, and Bill have been in conversation on the topic of career and personal development since their days together at the University of Rhode Island, where Randy was one of those exceptional students!

Bill currently lives in North Carolina with his wife, Dorothea, while planning a transition back to their New England roots.
