Industry veteran William (Bill) Kroll has been welcomed by Anova as its first advisor to support the company through a period of immense expansion. 

In April of this year, Anova became the new name for DataOnline, WESROC, Wikon and iTank, and most recently joined forces with Portugal-based Intelligent Sensing Anywhere (ISA).

With over 40 years of experience, Bill brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise spanning nearly every facet of business. Having spent more than half of his career with Matheson, most recently as Chairman and CEO, Bill is the epitome of a dynamic leader. 

During his years with Matheson, he focused on the strategic direction and growth of the company, particularly the development of its activities in the electronics market sector, including compound and silicon semiconductors. In recent years, Bill focused primarily on the growth of Matheson – implementing corporate culture changes that drove organic expansion and paved the way for several strategic acquisitions, dramatically increasing revenue for the company.

As a key advisor to Anova’s executive leadership team, Bill will add a highly valuable perspective that will enable the company to meet current and future market demands. “This is a unique opportunity to marry decades of global business experience with industry insights to help shape the company that Anova is positioning itself to become – the greatest IIOT company in the world,” said Bill Kroll. “I have the ability to provide the extra bandwidth to distinguish Anova from today’s norm for the constantly evolving customer experience and I am anxious to get started!”

Bill’s global business leadership experience includes Board responsibilities for Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation, where his vision for growth and investment in people, assets and infrastructure has had a direct impact across key regions like Southeast Asia, Europe, North Africa, and the UAE. “As Anova continues along a route of rapid global expansion, we will look to Bill’s success in guiding organizations through monumental transitions to help steer us,” said Chet Reshamwala, CEO of Anova. “We feel immense pride in welcoming Bill to the family, his presence will be felt immediately.”
