Mr. Powers worked in pharmaceutical R&D (Johnson & Johnson) for 26 years, rising to the position of Vice President of Global Preclinical Development. In various management roles, he led groups of scientists in the US, Europe and Asia; he administered multi-million dollar budgets and was instrumental in the successful development of several marketed pharmaceutical products. With a Ph.D. in Toxicology, Bill is a Diplomat of the American Board of Toxicology. He has published numerous abstracts, articles and book chapters on various topics in toxicology.
He has traveled extensively in the US, Europe and Asia, leading research groups in Belgium and Mumbai, India. Bill is married, has one adult child and one brother.
Bill’s love of words and books started in childhood, stimulated by parents who were both teachers. A voracious reader, he enjoys both fiction (R. Pearson, S. White, J. Patterson, H. Coben, D. Baldacci, S. Berry, etc.) and biographies (Lincoln, Grant, T. Roosevelt, J.P. Morgan, etc.). Now that he has moved away from his industrial career, he plans to aggressively pursue his passion of becoming a published author.
