William Shipley

Regional Director

With over 40 years of experience working in the professional services industry, William R. Shipley serves as Regional Director for the Pittsburgh office of McKinley Carter Wealth Services.

His first career milestone is marked by a 30-year career with Price Waterhouse LLP, now PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, where he served clients with responsive advice on tax matters, enterprise risk management, system integration, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Bill became a partner in 1988 and retired in 2004, having served clients in three different practice offices as well as the firm's national office.

Bill then went on to work as the Executive Director of a large Pittsburgh-based regional law firm (Thorp Reed & Armstrong, LLP, now Clark Hill, PLC) where he managed all aspects of firm operations, including financial, human resources, records management, and information technology. He then joined McKinley Carter in 2011 as Chief Administrative Officer, where he handled administrative management for all of the firm's five regional offices. In 2015, Bill transitioned from his Chief Administrative role in Wheeling to his Regional Director role in our Pittsburgh Office. 

Beyond his professional ties to the Pittsburgh area, Bill is also very active in various community and civic organizations: Hampton Shaler Water Authority Board, Ligonier Camp and Conference Center Board, Rotary Clubs International (Hampton Township Chapter), First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh, and various roles at Indiana University of Pennsylvania:  Foundation Board, Alumni Association Board, and Eberly College Business Advisory Council.

With service and experience spanning nearly five decades working in the professional services sector of the Pittsburgh market, along with his community commitment and civic involvement, Bill's role as Regional Director permits him to be instrumental in developing partnerships and new business opportunities, as well as expanding the firm's recognition, to those who may benefit from McKinley Carter's uncommon approach to financial service.
