Vistage Recognizes Bill Staley with Lifetime Achievement Award

Bill Staley, CEO of Belco Forest Products

SHELTON, WA, – Bill Staley, CEO of Belco Forest Products has been named the recipient of a 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award by Vistage, the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize businesses. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors long-standing members who see no finish line in their pursuit of world class. With a track record of bold decisions benefiting company, community and beyond, these leaders are a beacon of light to their peers. Bill receives this award from the Seattle Area Vistage Group, after being nominated by fellow members and voted as the recipient by the regional Chairs. 

Industry-wide Impact

Bill Staley has been CEO of Belco since 1999, succeeding his father John Staley. He transformed the company from commodities to a specialized focus on exterior trim and fascia products, revolutionizing the industry by implementing a two-step preservative and prime treatment process as a standard for Belco’s XT® exterior millwork family of products. This innovative and robust manufacturing process raised the bar industry-wide, and made Belco what it is today. 

Bill sets the vision and direction of the company, including its focus on leadership at every level. He has ensured that Belco remains committed to enriching the lives of employees through ongoing professional development and leadership opportunities. He exemplifies this mission by facilitating access to premier programs like Vistage, underscoring the belief that leadership is not a fixed achievement but an ever-evolving mindset. Belco celebrates the idea that anyone, regardless of role or position, can cultivate the skills to be a leader and positively impact those around them. 

Leaders Recognizing Leaders

On receiving this prestigious award, Bill says, “It’s an honor to receive the Vistage Seattle area lifetime achievement award. Especially being nominated and recognized  by my peers who have been such a tremendous support for me the last 10 years.  Joining Vistage was definitely a turning point in my career and the trajectory of Belco. A special thanks to my Vistage Chair, Linda Remsberg who had belief, and inspired me to do the hard things that made all the difference.”

“Bill is a leader with grit, vision and tenacity.  While leading generously he steps up to the “hard thing” when Belco’s goals call for it. Among peers he gives authentically and receives humbly to remain steadfast in his commitment to get better. If you don’t know Bill yet, get to know him, you will benefit.” – Linda Remsberg, Vistage Chair
