William Sibley, Jr.

Trustee emeritus William Sibley, Jr. joins a distinguished group of supporters who have given not only their treasure but also their skill to secure the future of Presbyterian College.

A native of Spartanburg, S.C., Sibley grew up in Union before going off to college and earning a degree from Georgia Tech. He began his professional career with West Point Manufacturing Company in Alabama but returned to the Upstate in 1961 when he joined J.P. Stevens and Co. to work in the textile manufacturer’s corporate engineering department. In 1974, he became vice president and assistant general manager of the new manufacturing services division. He led the company’s “quick response” strategies with customers and became a charter member of the Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standard technical committee.

A graduate of Harvard Business School’s advanced management program, Sibley moved back to Greenville in 1983 to serve as vice president of materials management and computer-aided management. In 1988, Sibley formed Computer Control + Integration Inc., which provided integrated systems for manufacturing processes in textiles and the food and beverage industries.

Sibley is also a tireless church and community leader. In addition to his service on the board of trustees for PC, he is a member of Fourth Presbyterian Church in Greenville, where he is an elder and adult Bible class teacher, and past moderator and treasurer of Foothills Presbytery.

Mr. Sibley was married to the late Nancy Holland of Marietta, Ga. He has three children and four grandchildren.
