Bill Campbell, CEO of WTS | First Defense traveled to Washington, D.C to compete for Small Business Person of the Year Award during the 55th Annual Celebration of U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) National Small Business Week, April 29-May 5.

Bill began his quest at the local level and was chosen as Pittsburgh District Office Small Business Person of the Year.  The nomination package, compiled by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, then was forwarded to the regional SBA office in Philadelphia to compete with the Eastern Pennsylvania winner to represent the state.  Bill was the winner and was awarded Small Business Person of the year for the great State of Pennsylvania.

While these are great honors, Bill insists winning these awards is only possible due to his wonderful and dedicated employees.
