Altair Global Announces the Passing of Co-founder Bill Plummer
FRISCO, TEXAS (September 14, 2021) – Altair Global sadly announced today that co-founder Bill Plummer passed away on September 4, 2021.
Regarded as a visionary and pioneer in the relocation industry, Plummer was a treasured and inspirational leader. He distinguished himself by establishing an extremely successful relocation business while also earning a reputation as an innovator.
In 1989 on a card table in their garage, Plummer, along with his wife and co-founder, Gail Plummer, started AmeriCorp Relocation Management, Inc., now known as Altair Global. Plummer served as President and CEO until 2004, then Chairman Emeritus until 2012.
He was also a dedicated family man and generous philanthropist. Whenever the company purchased new computers, he would personally oversee the installation of gently used equipment at the school in his hometown of Tonkawa, Oklahoma. He helped to equip the school with its own network, something unheard of at the time for a small, rural school district. Plummer will be remembered for his life of giving and vision of helping people, both personally and professionally.
“Bill built a unique culture of striving for the best and doing the right thing,” said Chad Sterling, CEO of Altair Global. “On behalf of Altair, I want to recognize him for helping to create the foundation for our success. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gail and the family.”
Together, the Plummers took Altair Global from a niche relocation firm with a handful of employees and one office to a worldwide organization. Altair Global now has 11 offices across the world and employs more than 500 team members.
