William D. Bedor (CPA), Chief Financial Officer
William (Bill) Bedor has been involved in the business world from an early age, starting as a teenager in his father’s business (CPA firm and the Mt. Washington Cog Railway in New Hampshire). After college, he gained invaluable business experience working with the international CPA firm of Ernst & Young. He left that firm to pursue an MBA and to help the family business and a group of investors successfully win a bid to purchase the historic Mt. Washington Hotel, one of America’s premier resorts.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Mr. Bedor founded a CPA and consulting firm in Hilton Head Island, S.C., growing it in just 10 years to the largest local firm in that area. Mr. Bedor’s CPA firm focused on helping entrepreneurs overcome all types of challenges-from typical accounting and tax issues, to strategic planning, human resources, and financing. He sold that firm in order to move back to New Hampshire and take the role of General Partner and Director at the Mt. Washington Hotel, eventually helping to orchestrate its sale.
Mr. Bedor continues to be active in multiple entrepreneurial ventures, as well as managing investments in real estate and equities. Mr. Bedor is a founding member of ASSIST-U.S.®and is the initial investor. He serves as the company’s CFO, overseeing all aspects of company finances.
