William "Bill" Leahy

Founder

I created Renaissance Reliability to serve the American Manufacturer and UNTURNING STEEL to serve our veteran community. Our collective responsibility is to set the standard for innovation, reliability, and manufacturing effectiveness worldwide by creating a company unafraid to go beyond incremental innovation to challenge antiquated norms. Our mission is to establish Reliability as a core value by making its benefits undeniable and its consideration universal.

I have worked in manufacturing as an Engineering Superintendent, Maintenance Team Leader, Consultant, and service provider. During my time in the industry, I have served various clients from aerospace to pharmaceutical. I have facilitated and coached all elements of Reliability Engineering and Asset Management. I am an expert in Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), and Design for Reliability and Maintainability (DfR).

Before my career in manufacturing, I served ten years in the United States Army as a West Point Cadet, NCAA Division 1 hockey player, and infantry officer. I was discharged from the Army at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA, in 2014 after achieving the rank of Captain. In the military, I learned the values of leadership, self-discipline, resourcefulness, integrity, and teamwork.

 

I earned a BS from the United States Military Academy at West Point, an MBA from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, the Reliability & Maintainability Implementation Certification (RMIC) from the University of Tennessee, and the Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) credential through the Society of Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (SMRP). 

I live in Southeastern New England with my family, splitting my time between serving my family and community. I am a Quaker Hill Gun & Rod Club member and volunteer as a hockey and soccer coach for the local colleges and youth sports organizations.
