Over the last 10 years, Billy has been an organizational catalyst and “CEO whisperer.” His companies focus on creating meaningful partnerships between organizations, building cultures, crafting strategies, and developing heart-centered leaders – all with the objective of accelerating growth and increasing revenue.
The Buckeye Group is known for finding “white space”—a company’s unrealized areas of opportunity and growth— connecting the right partners and creating the optimal conditions for conversation.
As a results-driven advisor at Billy Goldberg Partners, Billy brings imagination and drive, envisioning and delivering culture, strategies and processes that spark growth and create enduring value.
As a co-founder at The Forward Project with his partner Michele Kawamoto Perry, he synthesizes the complexities of business and the people involved to provide a simple strategy forward that creates results immediately and effortlessly.
Prior to founding his companies, Billy was an executive at the William Morris Agency, Bank of America, and the Tennis Channel. In each role, he delivered clients and managed relationships with global brands including Nike, Gatorade, Universal Pictures and Land Rover.
Billy studied international business in London, has a BS in business administration from The Ohio State University. He is an angel investor and served as Co-chairman of Melissa’s House. He has written for HuffPost, performed stand-up at the Improv in Hollywood, and speaks at universities about business and leadership. He loves attending college football games (with the goal of seeing every division 1 team play before turning 65), playing tennis and spending time with his family.
