About Bill Zipp

I help senior executives, sales leaders, and highly motivated entrepreneurs deliver exceptional results by expanding their ability to motivate and mobilize the people who work for them. I believe the secret to building a better business is this: becoming a better leader.

I’ve spent thousands of hours working with hundreds of executive leaders, from Fortune 500 companies, like Automatic Data Processing and Cisco Systems, to smaller, more entrepreneurial firms, like Concur Technologies and WebEx Communications. Many of these companies experienced dramatic revenue growth while working with me, some even doubling and tripling annual sales.

Better leaders. Better business.

My business background is in commercial radio where I was the fastest account executive in my company to reach one million dollars in sales. As sales manager, our team nearly doubled their direct sales revenue.

Eventually I became President and General Manager of the station group and together we achieved repeated annual growth in the face of intense competition due to deregulation of the industry. In 2001 we were honored to receive national recognition from the Radio Advertising Bureau for our company’s contribution to the field of Non-Traditional Revenue development.

I’m also a keynote speaker, addressing business conferences around the world, and a published author. I live in Corvallis, Oregon, home of Oregon State University and the beloved orange and black of the Oregon State Beavers. I’m married to Denise and have three adult children: Beckie, Ricky, and Renee.
