William A. Carroll, M.A.

Visiting Instructor

BA, Framingham State University; MA, Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, Tufts University

Email: bill.carroll@faculty.hult.edu

As CEO of a mid-sized international industrial firm, Bill Carroll managed through nearly every internal and external challenge a commercial enterprise can face. The abrupt exit of the company founder and the sale of the company to a German shareholder set the stage for his assumption of the company’s leadership – a situation made fortuitous by Carroll’s having managed every major function in the company.  A subsequent joint venture merged the company with its industry rival, spurring a host of integration and culture issues to be managed. Although most mergers fail to achieve their intended ends, Carroll’s company increased both market share and profitability.  The economic crisis of 2008 slashed the top line by 35% and forced Carroll’s parent company into receivership, but notwithstanding multiple crises, no debt was incurred and profitability was still attained.

As a beneficiary of management experience ranging from a Fortune 100 to an Inc. 500 firm, Carroll underpins his instruction with perspective gained from 20+ years of international experience, including foreign assignments in Hong Kong, Japan, and Latin America.

Bill Carroll Business Coaching LLC has since its inception three years ago been supporting multiple company leadership teams here and in the United Kingdom with core challenges spanning strategy, operations, new business development, innovation and finance.

In addition to his regular and widely read Leadership and business management blog on LinkedIn, Carroll has developed and taught MBA and undergraduate Leadership courses at Framingham State University and Tufts University. His other MBA work at Hult International Business School involves coaching student teams in solving real world business issues presented by some of the world’s most influential enterprises. In 2015 his teams’ solutions were selected by Philips and IBM from among dozens of alternative worldwide competitors.

An alumnus of Framingham State University, Carroll holds an M.A. from the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy at Tufts University. He is presently developing a virtual business coaching book draft entitled “The Business in Your Life, Your Life in Business”.
