Today's Featured Biography

 

William Merritt

After DuPont I attended Belmont College in Nashville for one year before transferring to Tennessee Tech in Cookeville. On graduation day June 5, 1959 I married Mary Ruth Teeple from Sparta, Tennessee. We moved to Chattanooga where I worked for Combustion Engineering for seven years in management. Out two daughters, Angela and Amy were born there. We moved to Connecticut in 1966 and I spent six years working as an Engineer for The Machlett Laboratories (Subsidiary of Raytheon) in Stamford designing and developing electrical mechanical devices. My work supported early NASA projects. Later I did research and development work on diagnostic and industrial X-Ray equipment. I was awarded multiple patents and was privileged to present technical papers in New York City and Washington D.C before IEEE meeting.

In 1972 I returned to Combustion Engineering this time in Windsor Connecticut as Manager of Master Planning and Control for the Power Systems Group. I held this position for fourteen years.

While in Connecticut my hobby of house designing developed into a full time business designing and building houses and light commercial building as well as historical restorations. I designed and built over one hundred houses throughout New England and received several awards and was featured in the Hartford Courant newspaper.

In 1988 Mary and I moved to South Korea with CE II where I was Resident Manufacturing Manager for a nuclear technology transfer project between CE and a Korean Electric Company.

From 1990 to 1993 I worked for CE Nuclear Power heading up the Environmental Health & Safety activities. After attending the Arthur D. Little School for Environmental, Health & Safety in Cambridge Massachusetts and the U.S. Department of Labor National Training Institute in Des Plaines, Illinois I began performing environmental audits for the various business units of ABB throughout the country. I retired from ABB in 1993 and continue to perform Environmental Health and Safety audits for Alstom Power.

All of my experiences – home designing; building; engineering and auditing - came together in 2001 when I became certified as a Professional Home Inspector with the Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI) and established Merritt Inspection Services, LLC engaged in providing home inspections.

Mary and I have two children and six grandchildren scattered from California to Pennsylvania to Connecticut to Florida. We both play competitive tennis, Mary more than I, and recently won the Sarasota County Seniors Mixed title and made it past the first round in the State of Florida Seniors tournament. We work out at Gold’s Gym 2 or 3 times each week and enjoy Florida.
