"In my role as the head of public policy for my company, Bill Sarraille has been outstanding to work with, as we have built this function over the past four years. I cannot count the number of times that Bill has been proactive in anticipating our needs as a company and has steered us down a path that ultimately saved us from making some major policy and, subsequently, financial mistakes.
