To our clients, partners and friends:
It is with great sadness that we need to inform you that Bill Trumpfheller – president of Nuffer, Smith, Tucker – died of cardiac arrest while in the mountains with his family on Thursday night, Dec. 29. He was 53 years old.
As you can imagine, the Nuffer, Smith, Tucker family is still processing this tragic event, and while we are all shocked and saddened, Bill left behind a veteran leadership team to help manage through this difficult time. The team has worked closely with Bill for many years to establish company culture, serve clients and manage agency operations. The team, led by Vice President Teresa Siles, who has been named NST’s managing director, is being supported with counsel from the agency’s Worldcom Group partners, and is in the process of tending to the details necessary to continue the good work for which NST is known, and to maintain continuity for clients and the NST team.
Those of you who knew Bill can attest to his big personality, charisma, and commitment to agency values. That said, Nuffer, Smith Tucker is a firm he helped build to what it is today and he would want that legacy to continue and for us to focus on providing continuity for our clients. That’s our commitment to you as we work through this very difficult time. We’ll be using the agency’s Facebook page to provide additional updates as appropriate.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
Nola Trumpfheller and the Nuffer, Smith, Tucker team
