Bill Palmer, former consultant at Complete Construction Consultants, has rejoined Hanley Wood as Editorial Director for the Commercial Construction Group magazines and websites.

“Bill is regarded as both a leading expert on the commercial construction industry, as well as an accomplished executive and general manager in magazines and website publishing,” says Pat Carroll, Executive Director, Commercial Construction Group.

At Hanley Wood, Palmer will oversee the existing magazines and websites, including Concrete Construction, Concrete Surfaces, The Concrete Producer, Public Works, Concrete Construction Products, as well as the group’s e-newsletter and webcast initiatives.

“We are extremely happy to have Bill’s experience and passion for the concrete industry back with us as he returns to work out of the Chicago office,” adds Vaughn Rockhold, Publisher, Commercial Construction Group.

In addition to his department director responsibilities, Palmer will be Editor in Chief of Concrete Construction, a role that he is very familiar with.
