Bill is highly skilled in budgeting, sales, integrated marketing, advertising, media and communications. Previously, his positions included COO of the George Shinn Companies and SVP of ticket sales and services for the New Orleans Hornets, where he and his team, just two years after Hurricane Katrina, broke the NBA record for the most new season tickets sold (6,000 – 25,000,000). When the team was sold to the NBA, Bill launched a 100 events in 100 nights grass-roots campaign to secure the team a home in New Orleans. He received his degree in business economics from University of California, Santa Barbara.
