A graduate of the Bryant & Stratton College, William Deyesso is a successful business executive who served for many years as an executive in the real estate industry. Throughout his career, William Deyesso handled a range of financial planning responsibilities, including budget projections and estimates.
One critical component of a budget projection process is the financial forecast. A forecast identifies future financial estimates, such as revenues and expenditures, in order to guide operational decision making and inform policy. Past and future trends are taken into account during the financial forecast process, which generally projects at least several years into the future.
The process of developing a financial forecast includes multiple stages, beginning with defining assumptions, and followed by gathering information, making analyses, and selecting a methodology. Various methodologies for financial forecasting include extrapolation, regression analysis, and hybrid approaches. Once a methodology is selected, implementation occurs. These stages culminate with a financial presentation or reports, so that the forecast is useful to decision makers.
William Deyesso has applied his expertise in corporate management as the CEO of the third party insurance company Buyer’s Choice Inc. and as executive vice president of Winn Development, a property management and development firm based in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to these roles, William Deyesso has also served on several corporate boards including those of V-Active Software Corporation, 320 Advisors Inc., Auto Success Magazine, Mountain Grainery LLC, and Russell Road Food & Beverage.
Although there are varying and sometimes differing views about the specifics of a board’s role in business, generally it is defined as a group of individuals who are responsible for governance of the business. Often, a board has responsibility to stakeholders in the business as well. More specific responsibilities of a board include appointing a CEO, developing policies and procedures, managing fiscal resources, and reporting to stakeholders. Ultimately, a board must also take responsibility for the direction and health of an organization.
