Bill DuperonMMTC-NL Office Welcomes Bill Duperon to Team

By: Betsy Williams, Business Development And Senior Business Advisor

A hot topic of concern in the region is retaining and finding talent. We are excited to have our own boomerang story to share. Please join us in welcoming William (Bill) Duperon, our new Business Solutions Manager, to the MMTC- NL team.

Bill is a native to Leelanau County (seventh generation) and graduated from Leland High School. He then moved to Hawaii and started in the real estate business. Following that stint, he received a bachelor’s degree in business from Loyola University in Chicago where he continued on to earn a MBA with a marketing focus.

For the past ten years, Bill has worked in the healthcare field with a focus on innovation facilitation, process standardization, brand development, and management. He has lived in Chicago, Phoenix, and Ann Arbor before returning to the Traverse City area. He currently lives in Leland with his wife and two daughters.

Bill’s primary focus is coordinating and overseeing open-enrollment training and supporting small- to medium-sized Michigan manufacturers by providing them with assistance and expertise to help them grow and improve.

Bill is looking forward to the opportunity to work with manufacturers and businesses with a primary goal of strengthening the region’s local economy.

So you can get to know Bill a little better on the personal side, I sat down and had a rapid fire question-and-answer session exchange.

  1. What do you want people to know about you? I’m a laid-back individual but sometimes I’m taken too seriously.
  2. What is your favorite quote? “The secret of getting ahead is getting started” by Mark Twain.
  3. What is your favorite fruit? Raspberries.
  4. What is your favorite color? Greenish.
  5. Who would you like to meet? My great-grandfather.
  6. Why? I love history and think I would learn a lot about who I am and where I came from.
  7. What is a recent great read? The Broker by John Grisham.

Have a question of your own or a training need to discuss? You can contact Bill at or 231-995-2009.
