About Aspire HR Consulting
As the founder of Aspire HR Consulting LLC in 2004, Bill combined his passion for HR with an understanding of the needs of small business owners who do not have the luxury of a full-time HR manager on-site.
Prior to Aspire, Bill worked for over 20 years with companies in senior HR positions. He has handled every HR issue that companies face and is able to apply the “best practices” of large corporations to create solutions for smaller companies.
Bill has a B.A. degree in Sociology and an M.S. degree in Human Resources from Rutgers University. He has written several books on HR management, and is been a featured speaker on HR topics. Bill enjoys history and adventurous travel with his family.
Julie Brand has a wide range of HR experience in recruiting, compensation, performance management and strategic planning for consulting firms Towers Perrin and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Julie holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources Management from Susquehanna University. In her little spare time, Julie is also an active volunteer for community charities and events.
