Bill McMoil steps in as RAPS’ interim executive director as Paul Brooks departs

RAPS Chief Operating Officer Bill McMoil has been named RAPS interim executive director, having officially taken on the role on 1 April 2020 after the retirement of Paul Brooks. RAPS announced Brooks’ planned early retirement due to family health concerns in December 2019 and had launched the search for a new executive director then. However, considering the unforeseen challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the executive committee of the RAPS board of directors has decided to temporarily suspend the recruitment effort.
 
“It is critical in this uncertain time for the organization to have steady leadership and ensure continuity of day-to-day operations, and we are fortunate to have a highly capable executive in Bill McMoil available to step in until a permanent successor can be identified,” said RAPS Board Chairman Don Boyer. “We are very pleased that Bill has agreed to take on the interim executive director role, and he has the full support and confidence of the RAPS board.”
 
McMoil joined RAPS in 2017 as vice president of finance, information technology and operations, and was promoted to chief operating officer in 2019. McMoil has worked in a variety of B2B and B2C for-profit businesses, from private-equity-backed startup software companies to publicly held telecom companies and global ISO certification bodies. While at RAPS, McMoil successfully managed the complete replacement and overhaul of the RAPS website and association management system, and oversaw the delivery of RAPS’ business continuity initiative, which has allowed RAPS staff to seamlessly transition to remote work and maintain full productivity while doing so. McMoil also has overseen significant growth of RAPS’ net assets since 2016, which will be critical in ensuring the long-term economic viability of the organization and its ability to support the regulatory community.
 
RAPS has retained Brooks remotely on an as-needed, consultative basis to support McMoil and RAPS as an external advisor during the transition period.
