  • Apogee Results
  • CEO

CEO of ApogeeResults.com, a McKinsey & Co. and Dell Computer veteran, Bill draws on a deep expertise in both business and marketing to help increase revenues for a wide range of clients. Bill has been driving provable revenues through Internet marketing techniques since the mid 1990s when, as part of the management team at Power Computing, he built the first company to sell $1 million of product over the Internet. Most recently, he led all customer- prospect- and influencer-facing marketing functions for Rimini Street, a pre-IPO tech company. While there, revenues grew from 68 million to a 130 million run-rate.

Bill has guided Apogee-branded marketing companies from inception to success, creating one of the largest independent online marketing agencies in North America and one of the fastest growing companies on the Inc. 500 list. Apogee has been particularly instrumental in building dozens of “Internet Retailer 500”, “Software 500”, and VC-backed companies, growing more Inc. 500 / 5000 companies than anyone else in the industry, and serving top global brands like Whole Foods, IBM, SAP and Hewlett Packard.

Bill also serves as president of the Austin Interactive Marketing Association, and speaks frequently at national and international shows, including Search Marketing Expo, South by Southwest Interactive, Shop.org, Internet Retailer, Search Engine Strategies, DreamForce, and ad:tech. In late 2012, Wiley Publishing issued Bill’s new book on integrated online marketing, “Complete B2B Online Marketing” with strong sales. Bill received an MBA w/ honors from the University of Texas at Austin and his B.A. from Yale University.
