Bill “Roto” Reuter grew up in Key West, Florida, and graduated from the University of Florida in 1984 where he earned a Bachelor of cience degree in Aerospace Engineering and was commissioned through the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) Program. 
Roto dreamed of flying in space since witnessing first-hand the Apollo 11 moonshot, but instead become a Navy strike-fighter pilot and lead test pilot before his assignment in 2008 as Naval Air Warfare Center executive officer and subsequently the commanding officer from 2010-2012. During his tenure, Roto led the 1200-personnel this command through the most transformational change in its 65-year history,
from a fixed-funding fiscal model to a working capital fund model while leading and instituting the Four Disciplines of Execution and the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership as part of a holistic strategy to develop people in order to scale the organization’s execution and its mission accomplishment.
Upon his retirement in June 2012 after 28 years of Naval service, Roto founded R-Squared Solutions LLC, a full-spectrum consulting firm specializing in leadership and executive coaching, high-performing organizational development, and DoD/federal industry business development. Leveraging his partnerships with world-renowned authors and speakers such as John Maxwell and Patrick Lencioni, Roto has successfully coached leadership teams in dynamic organizations in the fields of leadership, execution and organizational health with clients that include both small and large businesses in defense, federal and commercial sectors.
Roto has over 3,000 hours of flight time in 33 different aircraft, of which more than 2,100 are in the F/A-18. He has been awarded two Legion of Merits, two Meritorious Service Medals, two Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medals and the Navy Achievement Medal. His degrees include a Master’s and Post-Master’s (Engineer’s Degree) in Aerospace Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School and a Master’s in Business Administration from IMPAC University.
He is a member of The Society of Experimental Test Pilots.
Roto is very committed to the serving the Central Florida community and is involved in a variety of organizations, which focus on the community’s growth, veteran well-being, and support of the Navy to name a few. He serves on several Boards of Directors including the Navy League Council of Central Florida while serving as Past President of the Samaritan Resource Center for the homeless and the Past President of Florida Defense Contractors Association. In 2018, he was honored to be inducted into the Florida Veteran’s Hall of Fame.
