William attended St Faiths School in Cambridge followed by Greshams in North Norfolk before attending Oxford Polytechnic.
He has run a successful business employing more than fifty people for over thirty years. He set up in the property business with Tony Mullucks as Mullucks Wells in 1990, and the company now trades as Mullucks, part of Hunters – a larger organisation with a head office in York. He has a positive disposition, and believes in life there are people who give and those who take. Givers by nature tend to be more generous, understanding and accommodating.
William has previously been a governor for a preparatory school in Hertfordshire for 5 years. He lives in a small village in North Herts with his wife and three children, two in their early 20s and one currently taking A levels at Saffron Walden County High School. His hobbies include gardening and fly fishing.
