After working for Procter and Gamble for 33 years, Bill Bigham decided he wanted to do something more with his time than hit the links. The new goal: Chef. He was accepted into the Inaugural Freshman Class of Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, N.C., and at the young age of 56, he went back to school.
But golf was not off the table. While at Johnson & Wales, he was lucky to land an internship at the exclusive Pinehurst Resort during the 2005 U.S. Open.
Bigham, now Chef Bill Bigham, earned an Associates Degree in Culinary Arts, graduating Summa Cum Laude and has since become a personal chef working everything from small dinner parties to grand openings.
In 2007, Bill was named “Best of the Best” Personal Chef by Charlotte Magazine.
