I am a native of Nogales, Arizona and lived there until 2003 when Margarita, our three children and I moved to Tucson. My college education consisted of 2 years at Menlo College and one year at the University of Arizona. Starting in 1973 I spent 30 years working in the cross border logistics industry in a business founded by my father in 1950, William F. Joffroy, Inc. Sports have been a huge part of my life – 4 years of high school football, 4 years of high school track and field and 2 years track and field in college. I ran distance races from 1975 to 1985 and triathlon from 1985 to 1997. I have been cycling since 1985 and started Willie’s World Cycling in 2009, operating cycling tours in Italy and Spain. El Grupo’s focus on youth development and leadership through cycling has proven to be an excellent method for our local youth to embark on life’s adventures through teamwork, competition, leadership and handling victory and defeat with grace. My involvement with El Grupo started in 2012 as a small sponsor and has continued to date. Having served on several boards over the years, I can sincerely say serving on the El Grupo board is a true honor. It is one of the best boards I have served on.
