Driven executive focused on helping companies succeed. #910 on Inc 5000 in 2010 and #8 in the Austin fastest fifty in 2010.

Bill is a very intellegent individual who is a joy to work with, he was fast to learn his responsibilities and executed them with perfection. I am proud to havwe had the opportunity to impact his life in a favarobale fashion.
Bill's dynamic personality has made him a very successful leader in every position he has held. Bill is someone that conducts himself with the highest levels of integrity at all times. His unique mastery of both technical and interpersonal skills have led him to success with every team that he has been a part of. He gains both the personal and professional respect of every team that he is a part of. Bill's work ethic is unparalleled. I have had the pleasure of seeing him progress as a frontline peer, to an effective frontline manager, to a successful business leader with his current weather company. I have zero reservations about recommending Bill for any leadership position, especially those that have external visibility for the organization as he is able to represent both the organization as well as the himself in the best light. Bill doesn't just plan the work, he also works the plan.
Bill Combes is someone you definitely want to have on your team. He is a very effective leader. He gives 110% to anything he does. He leads by example and develops and encourages others to stretch beyond their potential. Bill does an excellent job in mentoring to others. As a tribute to his leadership, Bill was selected to participate in Leadership Round Rock in his second year at TG. The selection was amongst 700+ team members within the organization. The Human Resource Manager and the CEO make the nomination and selection.
Another one of his strengths is analysis. He is good at assessment and decision making. He is rational in his decision making and looks at all pros and cons before rendering a decision and is willing to take responsibility for the consequences of the decision.
His planning and organizational skills are top notch. Bill’s work ethic is outstanding and he is a great role model to emulate. One of his mottos is "taking it to the next level". Our team members strived hard to do just that.
Bill provided an open communication environment. He is able to organize his thoughts so that he is informative and at the same time persuasive. He displays confidence and poise, commanding respect in a positive manner. Bill is always professional in all of his dealings. Bill is high energy and he created an environment that people were comfortable in their work environment. His focus was creating a team environment that produced results, setting, meeting and exceeding goals which allowed for creativity, change and opportunity and fun in the work place. He fully understands team dynamics. His positive attitude as well as his "go-getter" attitude was infectious.
Bill left TG a legacy of loyalty and respect. He is a well-rounded individual and possesses all the desirable traits that make an effective leader as he was highly regarded amongst his peers and established a good solid reputation at TG.
Bill is experienced, knowledgeable, and was a welcome addition to the leadership team within Default Prevention at TG. He's well versed on technologies/best practices in collections, creative, an open communicator & collaborator, energetic and has, what I find to be, a very refreshing style. As such, Bill remains highly respected both within and outside TG. It was a real pleasure to have partnered with Bill and his team on several education finance repayment success initiatives.
Bill made a huge difference as the Assistant Manager Default Prevention at TG. He immediately energized the department with his new ideas. He implemented several ideas that increased efficiency and profitability in the area, resulting in him earning special individual recognition from the CEO of the corporation.
Bill's innovative ideas and outstanding motivational skills helped turn around an area that had been going south for quite a while. Shortly after Bill arrived, there was a marked improvement in morale and performance, all of which can be attributed to Bill and his excellent skills.
I had the priviledge of working with Bill on several initiatives at TG. Bill was considered a "go to" person in a key operational area within the corporation. Bill is a team player who ALWAYS exceeds expectations. He earned the respect of his staff; his colleagues and his superiors.
Bill and I worked closely together at TG when we both served on the TMAC (Team Member Activities Committee). Bill did a superb job for the two years he served on this committee at Treasurer. Not only was Bill great at maintaining the checks and balances of TMAC’s budget, but he proved to be very adept with his communication skills. I also had the pleasure to witness his excellent leadership and presentation skills frequently at TG as we were both active members of TG Toasters – TG’s own Toastmaster’s club. All in all, I would highly recommend Bill for any leadership or management role.
If there was a definition of stand up guy, Bill is it. Not only that, but he is a workaholic and a professional who knows what it takes to succeed because he has lived it.
I have known Bill for almost 20 years. Bill has always had a distinct vision of the weather industry and his drive to make things happen is always set at full speed. Whether it means creating new products or building relationships that push initiatives forward, Bill makes it happen. His pursuit of helping clients gain the advantage in the market and helping increase revenues was always his focus while at AnythingWeather. I enjoyed working closely with Bill and know his future will be bright no matter where he is working. At some point, I am sure we'll work together again!
I have known Bill for almost 16 years and have worked with or for him at 4 different companies.
Bill started AnythingWeather Communications with 3 employees. In a little over 2 years, the company has grown to 10 employees. Bill leads by example and many people find his enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating. Bill is always eager to share his knowledge with his associates and encourages them to come up with their own ideas and solutions.
I would work for Bill again without any hesitation.
I have had the pleasure of working with Bill the last two years at HailWatch. He is an out of the box thinker, an innovator of new products and system implantation. Bill is a fun and exciting Business Owner to work with. He promotes personal responsibility in a team environment. No matter how busy Bill is he will make time for you and help you with anything you need. Bill never answer your question but helps you to learn how to answer your own question. This creates and environment of growth and learning for a team. I look forward to working with Bill again in the future.
