Bill founded Constellation to pursue his passion for helping others turn their lives around and find joy through a life in recovery. Having experienced several treatment programs both personally as well as a family member, Bill felt there was big opportunity to “raise the bar” on the standard of care in the addiction treatment industry.
In 2010, Bill decided to leave a successful career as a Wall Street financial analyst to start Alta Mira Recovery Programs. Today, Alta Mira is nationally recognized for its quality of care, state of the art psychological testing and comprehensive approach to treating addiction and dual diagnosis disorders. After three years of running Alta Mira, Bill created Constellation in early 2013 to partner with entrepreneurs that share his vision and passion for finding a “better way” to treat addiction and co-occurring disorders.
Prior to Constellation, Bill worked for eight years as a Wall Street research analyst focusing on consumer Internet/media businesses. Most recently, Bill was a partner and senior analyst at ThinkEquity, where he re-launched their Internet and media franchise. Prior to ThinkEquity, Bill was a director and senior Research Analyst at JMP Securities and a senior associate at Salomon Smith Barney. Before working as a research analyst, Bill worked for a venture capital firm and a Chicago-based healthcare startup, Platinum Healthcare. Bill holds a BA from Colgate University and an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
