Under his leadership, Koman has developed over $2 billion in new projects since 2000 throughout the Midwest and West with a portfolio ranging from large office, parks, multifamily, student housing, and mixed-use projects. Development projects have exceeded 6 million sq. ft of various product types.

Bill is involved in numerous philanthropic and community organizations on the West Coast and in the Midwest with a particular focused effort on cancer and medical research.
