NWIBRT Honors William Satterlee for Half-Century of Service to NWI
At a recent NWIBRT Executive Committee meeting, members of the board honored William Satterlee, formerly of Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans LLP, with special recognition for his decades of service to the organization and to NWI overall. Satterlee was a practicing attorney for nearly 50 years in the NWI community, and recently celebrated his retirement.
“Bill Satterlee was a member of NWIBRT from the very beginning, serving as our legal counsel for many years. He was very in tune to the business environment we all worked in, and provided us a lot more than just legal counsel. He was a very active member of NWIBRT, and one of the core members of the executive committee for many years,” said Don Bull, Chairman of the NWIBRT Executive Committee and Director of Outage Management and Systems Engineering with NIPSCO.
“We would like to recognize him for more years of service than almost anyone else in the organization, and for being a friend to us all,” he added. “We absolutely appreciate him.”
Satterlee is a fan of jazz music, and even hosted a jazz radio show for several years. As a small token of NWIBRT’s appreciation, members presented him with a commemorative jazz book.
“It’s been a joy and a privilege to be a part of this group. It’s one of the finest things I’ve ever been a part of in over 50 years of practice. NWIBRT is near and dear to my heart, and I have a great love for NWI and its people,” Satterlee said.
