Bill is the founder of Sovereign Partners and has extensive experience working in Indian Country. He was an executive in charge of marketing for Sun Gold Gaming International based out of Scottsdale AZ specializing in linking casino development services to various Indian Tribes. He later started his own consulting firm and expanded his service to include casino development consulting to create and support strategic Alliances between casino companies, private investors, institutional financing, and designated Indian Tribes.
