Bill began his business career in 1968 as a financial analyst for the Marathon Oil Company.

A member of the MadAveGroup team since 2017, Bill is responsible for our business development and partnership functions. “I work with clients on strategic marketing initiatives and help them define their personal and corporate goals,” he said.
“I explain my approach to marketing as a chess game of sorts,” said Bill. “There are many moving parts and a lot of things to be mindful of, but with a strong strategy and a commitment to great execution, we can help our clients win.”
Bill’s philosophy: “Successful marketing requires a one-on-one relationship. A business is very personal to the owner and other stakeholders. So, we work with clients to truly understand the dynamics of their company. Sharing information and getting to know people on a personal and professional level is exceedingly rewarding.”
In 1973, he joined the stock brokerage firm A.G. Edwards and managed client assets for the next ten years. By 1983, he had formed his own firm - Continental Capital Corporation - which he grew to one of the largest private investment firms in the Midwest.
