In a message to i3 employees, Bill stated,
I have been very fortunate to have had two rewarding careers in my life – one with the USAF and one with i3. Both are well led, value based organizations that continually strive to exceed expectations while caring for their most important resource – their people. I have enjoyed my time with i3 tremendously and will miss my fellow team members greatly. I thank each and every one of them for their support over the years and will treasure their friendship and camaraderie always. i3 is a magnificent company destined for a bright future of continued growth and outstanding performance in the years to come.
Bill and his beautiful wife, Marilyn, along with their wonderful family, are avid travelers and have many more family vacations planned in the near future. Thank you General Looney for your dedicated service to both our country and to our company.
