About Bill Zipp


I help executive leaders do two things: think strategically and act boldly. I coach and consult CEO’s and their senior leaders, heads of sales and their sales teams, maximizing the performance of their high-growth firms.

Projects I’ve work on over the last year include the turnaround of a struggling sales force, redevelopment of a fractured executive team, creation and facilitation of an executive leadership academy, selection and onboarding of a new CEO.

Think strategically. Act boldly.

I’ve spent thousands of hours working with hundreds of executive leaders, from Fortune 500 firms, like Automatic Data Processing and Cisco Systems, to mid-size businesses, 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.

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 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.
