Faces of Duro-Last: Bill Paul


Bill Paul - Government Sales Manager

Bill Paul has been with Duro-Last® for 10 years with the last three as the Government Sales Manager. Bill works out of the Jackson, Mississippi office where he is responsible for GSA, State of Texas and State of Ohio contracts and price schedules, and projects sold under these contracts. Since Duro-Last is named as the prime contractor for government projects sold under these contracts, most of his time is spent working with Duro-Last contractors and sales reps to develop new government business and manage current projects.

Prior to his current position, Bill was a regional sales manager responsible for the Jackson sales office as well as sales reps in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. While in that position, Bill worked closely with the Duro-Last GSA contact person while applying for and eventually receiving the Duro-Last GSA contract. Previous to that he was a sales manager where he was responsible for the Jackson sales office, shipping, and order processing, as well as sales reps in the Southern United States.

Previous to Duro-Last, Bill received an MBA from Tulane University and worked in sales management for the Ford Motor Company Glass Division where he worked with independent glass distributors and window and door manufacturers to grow the business.

Bill enjoys the daily challenges of working with contractors to develop new government business as well as manage the 60+ government projects that are in progress at any time.

“I enjoy the challenges of working with our contractors and our government customers to sell the Duro-Last system.” I think the customer service that we offer our customers is the best in the industry, and every day it’s our goal to make it just a little better,” said Bill.
