William (Bill) Fenick is a retired US Navy Captain who served as both a Supply Corps and a Public Affairs Officer for 28 years. He grew up in a Navy family as well, moving every two years. He, his wife and their two teenage sons have now lived in San Diego for ten years, finally calling one location home. The Navy taught Bill the importance of community, care, and the quality of the execution of your mission.
After retiring, Bill joined the nonprofit sector as Executive Director of the SEAL Family Foundation where he helped support individual and family readiness through an array of programs specifically targeted to assist the Naval Special Warfare community in maintaining a resilient, sustainable and healthy force in this area of persistent conflict and frequent deployments. Seven years later, this past October, he was appointed to serve as Executive Director of the USO San Diego/Camp Pendleton. He is a champion for the men and women in the military, and their families—from the moment they join through their transition back to their communities. He has a strong belief that keeping those who’ve served here adds value to San Diego as these men and women provide the knowledge and service that makes our county unique, diverse and prosperous.
The Fenick family motto: Breath-Move-Live-Stay Active (because mobility is life)!
