Bill Fricker

Treasurer

Bill Fricker joined the Board of CASE in 2011. While a young child, his grandmother became ill and could no longer manage to live independently in her own home. Rather than move her to a nursing home, Bill’s family decided that she should move in with them. For the next two years of her declining physical health and mental abilities, Bill lived first-hand with the challenges and opportunities facing seniors, families and caregivers as the need for support increases. This early life experience strongly influenced him to pursue a career in human services.

Bill earned his undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MM) degrees from Northwestern University/Kellogg Graduate School of Management, then he worked for 12 years in the consumer-driven consulting field, prior to entering the non-profit sector in 2001. During his leadership work with local nonprofits, Bill has demonstrated his commitment to ensuring the continued success of organizations with high-quality operations.
