CEO, Pebble Beach Golf Course

Since 1999, Bill Perocchi, CEO and part-owner of Pebble Beach, has been at the helm of one of the world’s most renowned golf resorts, a continent removed from the Lawrence, Mass., Stadium Housing Projects. After the stress of a family tragedy threatened to derail Perocchi’s future, Lawrence Boys & Girls Club staff helped secure him a full scholarship to a prestigious boarding school, paving the way for a successful career. Perocchi has shown his appreciation to Boys & Girls Clubs in many ways, from golf benefits to private school scholarships for Club members. To honor retiring director Jack Menzie, Perocchi recently made a surprise $1 million dollar pledge to the Lawrence Club.
