William Pingel
Director, Operations

Hi, I am William … I attended Southeast Missouri State University and have worked in direct marketing for over 30 years, holding positions in production, IT, operations and executive management for both small and very large organizations. Most recently, I was Vice President of Operations for Diamond Communication Solutions, a sister company to Gabriel Group.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, as well as getting in some hunting/fishing and golf when I can, but my real passion is smoking meat for family and friends on my wood burning smoker.

My first job was working at Pingel, Inc., a multi-generational family owned blacksmith/machine shop in Perryville, MO, known for manufacturing both custom wood and steel truck bodies.

As a child, I wanted to grow up to be a computer programmer.
