William D. Evers—Chair and General Counsel
Mr. Evers’ involvement with Annuvia is fortuitous in that it allows him to combine both ends of the health spectrum; those of life and death issues and workplace fitness. He has been involved in personal healthcare and quality of life partnerships in a variety of forms for more than 30 years. His major impetus and driving force is that of promoting both a healthy physical environment and the internal quality of life that forms the basis of fitness.
Mr. Evers is a highly respected Bay Area native with extensive experience in the area of fitness and the role wellness plays in a productive life. He began the How Healthy Centers in an attempt to help people become aware of their personal fitness levels, a gap often unaddressed by a typical medical physical examination. Recognizing that approximately 4% of the workforce incurs nearly 20% of the health care costs, Mr. Evers has as a primary goal to teach lifestyle and behavioral changes that promote wellness. It is a natural corollary for him to partner his extensive skills and business acumen with Annuvia’s focus on workplace readiness and safety. Additionally, he has practiced corporate and securities law for over forty years and was the managing partner of Petit, Evers & Martin for twelve years. He founded the California Capital Access Forum and has promoted numerous seminars on financing young companies and start-up organizations. Mr. Evers was a member of the SEC Task Force on Small Business Capital Formation and the co-founder of the Alpine Meadows of Tahoe, Inc. and Boreal Ridge ski areas. He served as President on the Mayor’s office of Economic Development for San Francisco (1975-1978) and retired from the practice of law as a partner of Foley & Lardner, specializing in corporate and securities practice.
Mr. Evers received his BA from Yale University and his J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.
