Bill Turner

Chairman

Following a four-decade career as a banker and management consultant, Bill Turner recently scaled back his full-time activity to focus on board work and other ventures. In addition to serving on the board of Aspen Public Radio, Bill also serves on the board of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation. 

As a consultant, he worked with senior executives of large financial institutions on their issues of strategy, organization and operations. While working at McKinsey, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, and A.T. Kearney, he assisted clients in more than 25 countries and resided overseas for more than a dozen years in London, Seoul, and Hong Kong. He led strategy and financial services consulting practices in the U.S., the United Kingdom, the Middle East, across Europe, and in Greater China. 

Before consulting, Bill led the corporate banking business for Chemical Bank, now JPMorgan Chase, in five mid-western states, managing relationships with large corporations and banks, and structuring and negotiating complex credit transactions.

Eons ago, he graduated from Brown University with a degree in economics and also earned an MBA in finance from Columbia University.

Bill's family has been coming to Aspen and Snowmass to ski since the mid-1980s, and they've owned their home in Snowmass Village for 13 years. Bill, his wife Paula, and their dog Lola now split their time between Colorado and Manhattan. Skiing, diving, travel, and golf are continuing pastimes, as is active participation in the many Aspen-area festivals. 

Bill and Paula have been APR members for five years and look forward to remaining involved in extending the station's success.
