William Deyesso is a veteran of corporate management, insurance, and real estate. With decades of combined experience as the CEO of the third party insurance company Buyer’s Choice Inc. and as executive vice president of Winn Development, where he specialized in the management and development of real estate. While at Winn Development, William Deyesso was active in preserving the affordability of existing housing developments.
According to the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the supply of affordable housing in the United States is decreasing. Additionally, demand for affordable housing has increased at the same time.
Preserving existing housing units is generally more efficient and cost effective than constructing entire new housing complexes and this method also has several benefits to the local economy. Besides costing only one-half to two-thirds as much as new construction, preserving existing housing allows residents to maintain social networks in the area. Rehabilitation of existing housing can also focus on energy-efficient enhancements or similar improvements. For additional information on preservation of affordable housing, visit the HUD website at www.huduser.gov.
The father of three and grandfather of five, William Deyesso is an experienced corporate executive and former CEO. He is also involved in charitable organizations such as Toys for Tots and the Special Olympics. Outside of his career and philanthropy, William Deyesso runs a gentleman’s farm in New Hampshire.
A gentleman’s farm is a small-scale, non-operative farm typically used as a horse or hobby farm or to support a bed and breakfast. While the production of food through plants or raising animals is part of the farm’s operation, it is not the primary means of income for the farmer. The gentleman farmer instead farms for pleasure, rather than production output or profit.
Farming techniques can vary, but they are often environmentally responsible and are conscious to animal welfare and public health, similar to organic farming. Gentleman farming also differs from the more commonplace large-scale industrial agriculture, which emphasizes efficiency and cost.
The former executive vice president of WinnDevelopment, William Deyesso transitioned to the insurance industry in 2000. He now serves as the chief executive officer of Royal Administration Services. In addition to his professional pursuits, William Deyesso enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities, including golf.
Golf Digest recently published an article explaining how to hit short wedge shots that land the ball near the pin. To begin, execute a less-than-full backswing by swinging the arms no higher than parallel to the ground, which will facilitate a shorter and more controlled shot. Synchronize the body and arms with a horizontal shift at the start of the downswing, but don’t unwind the backswing turn.
In the last phase of the swing, push off the ground for power and shift the hip, knee, and right shoulder over the ball for impact. These final adjustments will enable the forward shaft lean and shallow strike necessary for a wedge shot that drops and stops on the green.
