As VP of Program Management at City Building & Engineering Services (CBES), Bill Lawrence passionately leads multi-site programs for some of the top retailers across the nation. Alongside his dedicated team, Bill strives to deliver beyond his clients’ expectations and has been successfully launching large-scale projects such as “Buy Online, Pickup in Store” that are both cost effective and quickly scalable for over four years.
With an extensive background of almost 40 years in the construction/engineering field and a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology from Wentworth Institute of Technology, he also specializes in store development, A&E management, merchandising services and construction management.
Bill is proud to be part of the diverse City family offering a full suite of turn-key services from facilities maintenance to engineering and construction to energy management and sustainability. However, what particularly drew him to CBES was its company culture and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves as someone who shares the same values.
Personally, Bill is co-chairman (and avid golfer) for the second highest grossing golf tournament that contributes to the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, having raised over $7,000,000 in donations in 31 years. In addition, he enjoys outdoor activities with his family and friends and cheering on his children in multiple sports as often as possible.
