CMP Human Resources - Bill Goad
With help from United Virginia as part of an entrepreneurial initiative at the West Piedmont Business Development Center, Bill was empowered to step out in faith and start his own business that has experience remarkable growth in 2011.
Bill’s experience working for a Fortune 500 Company for almost 10 years gave him a lot of confidence to begin his business venture. “I had 30 years experience in Human Resources and felt like that would be the best opportunity. I had the SPHR Certification, an Executive Coaching Certification and a Masters in Human Resources and Organizational Development. So I had all the tools to be successful.”
Operating with the tag line is "We find the Best for the Best", Bill has grown revenues far in excess of what he had anticipated in 2011. He credits the Enterprise Virginia program operated by United Virginia with having a significant impact on his entrepreneurial success.
