Bill Thorne joined B&D in September of 2010 and was promoted to President in 2023.
Bill holds a degree in horticulture from the University of New Hampshire and a degree in landscape architecture from Louisiana State University. After graduating, Bill joined the team at HOK in Washington D.C. as a landscape designer. After working as a designer, Bill relocated to Houston and gained experience in project management, construction, and business development.
In 2010, Bill joined B&D as a project manager. With over 20 years of experience in the industry that blends planning, landscape architecture and construction, Bill now oversees all aspects of operations. Whether it is nurturing new and existing client relationships or making sure the company’s values are integrated into its daily operations, Bill enables B&D to execute its highest vision.
The Halliburton Campus project in 2014 was one of the most meaningful projects of my career. It was the largest scale project that I personally managed, and due to it being an oil and gas company, the safety protocols were extreme.
I am most proud of the Levy Park Project. It was a multidisciplinary project and showcases everything we offer as a company: Landscape Installation, Water Features, and Hardscape Construction.
To me, it means that the moment someone needs an answer, they call me, and I am able to deliver. At B&D, we strive to be a one-stop shop by providing multiple disciplines to complete all landscape construction needs.
