Neil Willis is the CEO and founder of Hypersign, a digital signage software company located in Greenville, South Carolina.
In this Sixteen:Nine Podcasts episode, Neil talks about a long career path that had very humble beginnings – working in the air force in Arkansas and sweeping floors at a big box store on weekends to help pay the family bills. A chance encounter while sweeping up got him out of the service and into IT, and later into ISP services and systems integration.
Years later, he’s running a very successful CMS and services company heavily focused on working in K-12 schools … and in healthcare. Neil and I spoke via Skype, and it gets a little scratchy here and there, mostly on my end.
Dave Haynes is the founder and editor of Sixteen:Nine, an online publication that has followed the digital signage industry for some 14 years. Dave does strategic advisory consulting work for many end-users and vendors, and also writes for many of them. He’s based near Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Canada’s east coast.
