About Me Brief Biography
Bill has been leading technology organizations for the past 15 years. As an executive and consultant in the cable television industry, Bill has successfully lead several key initiatives for both cable operators and vendors of products and services. From managing new business initiatives and product deployment within some of the largest telecommunications companies or raising money and operating a start-up venture, Bill has driven organizations towards specific goals under a variety of conditions. Most recently, Bill has written about several key industry topics and regularly consults with companies on Interactive Television, IPTV, Home Networking, and Advanced Advertising. Bill focuses on the critical time when new products and technologies are ready to “enter the atmosphere” of an organization at the right velocity and angle so that they neither bounce off irretrievably into space nor incinerate in a flame due to the dense corporate atmosphere of competing interests. As a software product manager for several years, Bill managed the development of several cutting edge solutions to product initiatives that required automation in order to scale the business appropriately. Some of the industry “firsts” that Bill lead were the B2B integration and automation of AOL and Time Warner for broadband sales, the automation of order management for business class telecommunications services offered by cable companies, the automation of order handling between cable companies and 3rd party service providers for telephone services, and the direct to consumer web order management process with full automation to back-office billing and operational support systems. Whether the solution involved acquiring other companies, extending existing solution sets, or starting from the beginning, Bill has guided different strategic approaches to addressing the business need.
