CII proudly presents its Richard L. Tucker Award to Mr. William C. Beck for his 28 years of service to the Institute.

William C. Beck (Bill) retired from WorleyParsons as Vice President and Director of Quality Management, after working for the organization and its legacy companies for more than three decades. He has served in numerous capacities, including Procurement Management, Director of Safety, Project Management, Business Development, and Materials Management Services.

Bill currently managed the Global Quality Management Group including Corporate Audit, Supplier Quality Project Services, and Construction Quality. He is responsible for Business Processes, Project Improvement, Company Certifications and Registrations, and Quality Services, a business unit which provides a range of quality services for external clients.

Since 1989, Bill has been a very active participant in CII. His past participation includes involvement in seven CII research teams including the International Standards Research Team, Lesson Learned Research Team and Work Breakdown Structure Team, and CII’s Quality Management Research Team, which proved to be his favorite research experience due to the many challenges they overcame during this project. He served as a CII Implementation Champion, Executive Committee Member, Best Practices Guide author, and as a member of several CII Communities of Practice. He served as Co-Chair of the Implementation Strategy Committee and as a longtime Board of Advisors member for WorleyParsons. In 2011, CII recognized Bill as the Institute’s Outstanding Implementer.

Bill served as a planner and moderator for several Performance Improvement Workshops, always bringing immense value to the workshop audience. PIW attendees consistently rated his sessions as excellent, citing his keen insight and valuable industry know-how.  He also participated in the production of several ISC videos on implementing CII practices.

Bill’s personal commitment to CII’s mission, coupled with his involvement in CII committees, provided WorleyParsons access to important industry trends and useful implementation information. He was the driving force behind the effort of the CII’s Implementation Strategy Committee (ISC) to help member companies and assisted countless Implementation Champions, who delivered CII’s Best Practices back to their companies. For his countless years of service to CII and dedication to improving this industry, we are quite proud to present the Richard L. Tucker Award to Bill Beck. Please join us in congratulating him!
