Meet the Team: Bill Bowers, Account Manager
Bill Bowers has been a part of the Everest team ever since the Philadelphia office first opened in 2017. Prior to Everest, Bill worked at Copy Secure, a paper discovery company then owned by Tom Pellegrino, the current CEO of Everest. After Copy Secure was acquired by a large eDiscovery provider, Tom reached out to Bill and asked him if he would like to join the Everest team. He now serves as an account manager where he is instrumental in ensuring clients are happy and get the expertise and services they need.
Favorite Things about Everest
The team at Everest is something that Bill really enjoys. “Everyone is always willing to help you and go the extra mile to complete projects for our clients,” states Bill. As an example, Bill shares, “A few years ago, we had an extremely large printing project that, due to the volume, was going to take several days to complete. Everyone from the CEO on down was in the office working around the clock for several days to ensure the project was completed on time.” This type of teamwork is exactly what Bill points to as one of his favorite things about Everest.
A Normal Day at Everest
During a normal day, Bill spends his time working on projects and discussing their status with clients. He is always striving to identify the most efficient and cost-effective ways to complete their projects to help them prepare for trial. In addition, Bill interacts with his internal team to discuss their projects. Bill is very happy with his team, which always works hard to make their clients happy with their services.
“If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.” —Epictetus
“We can read 100 books on something, but no matter how much we think we know about a subject, nothing will beat personal experience and we will most likely look foolish the first couple of times we try. The improvement will come from continuing to strive for excellence despite looking foolish the first couple of times,” Bill explains.
Serving Our Country
Bill was a member of the U.S. Air Force from 1984 to 1992. During that time, Bill was stationed in the Philippines where he assisted in the transition and departure of then President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986. He also participated in Operations Desert Shield/Storm in 1990 and 1991. Before leaving the Air Force, he was stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota.
To document his time in the Philippines, Bill wrote a book called “Nighthawk – A Young Airman’s Tour at Clark Air Base,” with the help of Sandee Hart. The book is a series of vignettes about his growth as a person and airman as well as the admiration and love Bill has for the Filipino people.
His Free Time
Outside of work, you can find Bill spending time with his family, organizing reunions for his military brothers and sisters that he was stationed with in the Philippines and playing baseball.
