Bill Shehan, Sr.
President / CBP
Bill Sr. was born and bred on a small farm in Bardstown. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in education and spent 8 years as a passionate teacher and coach, before founding Shehan Pools in 1972. He grew the business from a small swimming pool company to a dynamic global concern with projects on three continents. Although partially retired, Bill is still involved with the management of the company and a proud volunteer and contributor at Kicks for Kids. When he is not fishing at the family cabin at Lake Cumberland, you will see him behind the wheel of his immaculate 1929 Ford Model T, grandchildren at his side.
Faye Shehan was born in Albany, Kentucky, where she won the title of Miss Clinton County. She also attended Eastern Kentucky University, where she met her future husband. After obtaining a degree in education, she married Bill Sr. shortly after. Faye taught Cosmetology for 28, years during which time she opened the first Shehan Pool supply company. When she is not volunteering at Kicks for Kids and Redwood (a home for children with special needs), she serves as Kentucky’s Vice President of Retired Teachers and struts her stuff as a rather formidable real estate investor.
This year, 2013, marks Faye and Bill Shehan’s 50th wedding anniversary.
