William Carrion, President at CCG Consulting Group, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in pharmaceuticals administration and construction management.
After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez in 1987, Mr. Carrion became a process development investigator for Bristol-Myers Squibb. He gained valuable expertise in pharmaceuticals as a manufacturing manager for Procter & Gamble, a plant manager for Colgate Palmolive, a general manager for Millipore Corporation and as the vice president of operations for Carrington Laboratories. Mr. Carrion continued his education with a Master of Business Administration from the Universidad del Turabo in Gurabo in 2000.
Mr. Carrion excelled from 2003 to 2004 as a vice president of operations for Carrington Laboratories, a project delivery manager from 2004 to 2007 for CSA Group Architects and Engineers, the executive director from 2007 to 2012 of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority. Currently, Mr. Carrion excels as the president of CCG Consulting Group, an organization he founded in 2012.
In order to remain aware of changes in the field, Mr. Carrion joined with the Colegio de Ingenieros y Agrimensores de PR as the president of the Caguas chapter, the Puerto Rico Water & Environment Association and the Water Environmental Federation. He was named as the Manager of the Year through the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association and earned the You Can Make a Difference Award through Colgate Palmolive for his significant contributions in building a new manufacturing plant for the company in 1998.
Mr. Carrion attributes his success to his desire to build a future for the next generation as well as to his mentors and to his leadership, communication and people skills. In addition, he also attributes his success to being able to gather a team of experts for the reconstruction and redevelopment of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority.
Seeing the migration of the pharmaceutical industry in terms of outsourcing services is what led Mr. Carrion to be involved in his profession. He believes that he had to outsource himself if he wanted to stay competitive. Thus, he was able to broaden his knowledge and expertise in terms of sales and in providing high quality services to customers through his own experience working for several large and well-known pharmaceutical companies in the world.
As a career highlight, Mr. Carrion mentions his involvement with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority that suffered severe damages due to Hurricane Maria in 1997. At that time, he had sufficient infrastructure expertise from water to electrical utilities that his firm was hired to conduct the damage assessment and present the damages claims. FEMA and other government agencies were also involved with the project. Along the way, his group were able to have a very competitive team of resources to work with the project. Eventually, it became the largest FEMA claim in United States history for a single applicant which was amounting to more than $10 million.
In the coming years, Mr. Carrion hopes to grow and further expand CCG Consulting Group by 15% in terms of staffing and revenues as well as to maintain the current baselines of the company. In addition, he wants to travel the world and have fun.
