William (Bill) Mahoney, appointed CEO of ASM International in 2016, has oversight of ASM’s 25,000 member organization, including business development, member services, and materials technology services operations. Bill was formerly CEO at SCRA, and under his leadership over 11 years, annual revenues from SCRA’s applied research and commercialization services operations grew from $74M to over $455M. In this same timeframe, SCRA annual year-end backlog grew from $93M to $1091M, annual net revenues set company records of up to
7.9%, and total contract value under management grew from $235M to over $5.2B.
During the roughly 30 years prior to coming to SCRA, Mahoney led companies small and large, which commercialized ″first-of-a-kind″ solutions in telecommunications, electronic publishing, automatic remote monitoring and other emerging applied systems markets, leading directly to IPO's or strategic acquisitions. Among these companies was SCT Utility Systems, of Columbia, SC. Between 1995 and 2000, SCT grew from startup to $175M annual revenues, prior to its sale to Indus International (now Ventyx Corp). SCT′s installed base of customer information systems for energy, utility, and communications companies is still one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Mahoney held a non-voting seat as secretary of the SCRA Board, and also served as the chairman of SCRA's wholly-owned applied R&D affiliate, Advanced Technology International Inc. He currently serves on outside corporate boards as chairman of SCRA-invested tech startups STEM Premier and Carbon Conversions Inc. He also serves on national Boards with the National Defense Industrial Association, the National Energy Marketers Association and the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association. On a state and local level, he serves or has served on the boards of the SC Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Alliance, Midlands Technical College Foundation, and SC Economics.
Mahoney is a Harvard graduate and former member of both the Harvard Crew and the U.S. National Rowing Team. He and his wife, Paula, have been married for 39 years and have two adult sons, one a U.S. Navy officer and one a professional baseball player.
