About William Monterosso

A graduate of Glenville State College in West Virginia, William Monterosso earned his bachelor of science in just 30 months before beginning his career as a juvenile probation officer in West Virginia in 1990. Over the next four years, he supervised youthful offenders and helped them follow rehabilitation plans, finding the right resources and coordinating their placement with the relevant entities. During this time, William Monterosso also spearheaded the development of Wood County, West Virginia’s first alternative school and received the county’s inaugural Juvenile Justice Grant. In 1994, Mr. Monterosso left this position to become the director of the Children’s Home Society, a position he held for four years.

After a foray into the insurance industry as an award-winning agent with Horace Mann, William Monterosso returned to the human services field in 2001, when he was named the program director of the Workforce Investment Board in Parkersburg, West Virginia. In this capacity, he oversaw a $2 million budget and developed work and education programs for adults and youths. He also handled strategic-planning and grant-writing duties.

Since leaving the Workforce Investment Board in 2005, William Monterosso has held leadership positions with organizations such as Ross Innovative Employment Solutions, also in Parkersburg, and the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training in Frankfurt.
