EWA salutes Executive Director, Spectrum Solutions, William (Bill) Sterner who retired from “active duty” after a nearly 40-year career in the wireless industry. His career began in the Navy where, at the end of his tour in 1997, he was Satellite Scheduling Contact for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Contingency Support Division. In 1998, he joined the Licensing Assistance Office (LAO), which was acquired by EWA in 2007.
Bill’s exceptional attention to detail and his passion for solving problems has buoyed him throughout his career. His willingness to take on challenges in support of the team will be missed. Executive Vice President of Spectrum Solutions Ila Dudley noted that Bill is the one she called when faced with unusual coordination circumstances.
“I really enjoy what I do. I love the engineering part of it; I love solving problems. That’s what I did in the Navy.... I’m going to miss it,” commented Bill.
