Bill has always had a strong interest in technology and business, an interest that led to his obtaining his bachelor’s degree in applied physics from Georgia Tech and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
Early in his career, Bill ran the European operations of a U.S.-based music services business. Stationed in London for three years, he created a pan-European satellite distribution network using cutting-edge MCPC technology. This new technology changed the industry paradigm for delivering music to customers. In 2000, he co-founded a technology-based startup called EGT, an ATDC company. EGT was focused on building products to improve the bandwidth efficiency of transmitting video over various networks. The company raised more than $30 million in venture capital, developed the first software-based video encoder for the cable television industry and generated more than $12 million per year in annual revenue.
ARRIS acquired EGT in 2009, and Bill led the integration of the EGT business into ARRIS and directed product management for ARRIS’ video encoder business. Most recently he directed internal operations for ARRIS’ Video Systems business, which generated more than $300 million in 2015.
