Senior Associate Director of Business Engagement and Community Affairs
William Westmoreland is currently serving as the Associate Director for Business Engagement and Community Affairs for Pacific Mountain Workforce Development.
A Purdue University alumni, William Westmoreland lives what Purdue strives to instill in their graduates: responsible leadership in the state, nation and world. Westmoreland’s experience and tenacity combined with the focus of Pacific Mountain Workforce Development benefits the integrated system that supports regional employers by supplying them with the skilled workers all the while providing the best service to our shared community.
William is deeply invested in advancing the work of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and can be expected to prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion, thus working to create an environment that respects and values individual difference along varying dimensions.

As a member of the Executive Leadership Team, Westmoreland is working to design and implement PacMtn’s strategic vision by managing community and potential funding relationships in an effort to increase access to the local workforce system by industry and sectors critical to the region. William’s experience in industry engagement, program and product development and implementation have fostered an environment where he understands the value of teamwork and collaboration and is dedicated to supporting those around him. His leadership style is inclusive, thoughtful, and kind.
