Bill Seeley worked in my area during his employment with ADP. He lead several key projects using his technical knowledge which included building and migrating over 5000 clients to a more secure FTP site. He also led the way into a new technology using Vmware to consolidate servers for our operation.
These projects were in addition to providing system server support for the business area. Bill left for personal family reasons and was in good standing at that time.
“Bill was an engineer that always brought a professional determination with him to every task assigned. Bill was not the type of engineer to accept a given task lightly; his pursuit of an efficient and savvy solution was to be expected.
Bill was responsible for creating a virtual environment that allowed us to recover a production system that had previously been thought "unrecoverable". He would be an asset to any team.”
