Philip Williams has a unique and valuable viewpoint regarding business growth. He has a great deal of experience helping people grow their small businesses and focuses on the people side over the financial aspects. He was hired as a CEO by a company that didn't know how they were going to pay him. He took this failing business and helped grow its revenue by 50% every year WITHOUT even setting goals.
Philip’s business education started at the family dinner table when he was about 8 years old. He was raised by a Barber Shop and Auto Salvage Yard owner then climbed the corporate ladder outside the family business. He’s worked in manufacturing, distribution, engineering consulting, and professional services. He's a 3-time Inc5000 honoree after becoming the CEO who took the helm of a 17 year old cash strapped company and grow it at 50% a year for 5 straight years.
That resulted in two nearly simultaneous acquisition offers from two publicly traded multi-national corporations. He accomplished it all by bootstrapping the business - no outside money. He's bought and sold a couple companies and been through the highs and lows you can only experience through small business ownership. Today, he helps small business owners build profitable and well respected companies through his consulting firm.
