New Staff Spotlight: Bill Smith

Being a facilities manager for a small housing nonprofit like ours is no small task. We’ve been lucky to have some real hard workers with lots of vision and creativity fill that role for us in the past, and thankfully we’ve found another such person in Bill Smith, who joined our team in January 2022.

Get to know Bill a bit, in his own words:

Tell us about your background in facilities management.

I have been involved in construction and remodeling most of my adult life. I spent years working in multifamily property management, worked as a general contractor, and for a few years was responsible for the remodel and repair of 7-Eleven stores throughout the Northwest.

What drew you to Attain Housing’s mission?

I was drawn to Attain because my own background included years where I was the one in need of housing and support. I got the help I needed and for many years, I have looked for ways to give back in my personal and professional life.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work? What are some of your favorite things about living in the Northwest?

My favorite activities outside of work include hiking, boating, and taking the boat to places that I can hike. I love to explore, especially in the woods! My other favorite activity is playing with my grandkids, which keeps me young and keeps them busy. Those are also reasons I love the Pacific Northwest because my favorite things to do are right outside my front door. My highlight of my life in the Northwest was boating to Sucia Island and getting married at sunset.
