Bill Moore

President and CEO

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a B.S. in chemical engineering, Bill became a product development engineer for Procter & Gamble in 1985. After the unexpected death of his stepfather, Bill left P&G to lead his stepfather’s company, George Meyer Company. He developed a functional ability to process recycled starch products, while also recognizing a need by many companies in the food industry for a trusted and capable contract manufacturing partner. Over the last 25 years Bill has evolved the company to meet this need by providing blending, spray drying, extrusion, re-packing, and consumer packaging.

The company has expanded multiple times with facility additions in 1997, 2006, and 2013 including a second plant in Mooresville, Indiana. The latest addition in 2015 is the opening of the PacMoore Innovation Lab in Gridley, Illinois.

Bill’s energy and forward-thinking attitude have helped to spur this remarkable growth, not only in facilities but in sales and people as well. Employee transformation including spiritual development has defined the culture and the ability of the company to expand. The company employs 300 people, processes approximately 250 million pounds of ingredients each year and generates annual sales over $35 million.

Bill and his wife Susie live in Carmel, Indiana and worship at College Park Church.
