Bill Barnes,

Branch Manager, Utah

Bill has been in the industry since 2002 and with TCG since 2008. While he began in K-12 and Higher Education markets, he now is a trusted advisor for the Enterprise markets. Although not a techie and more of a motorhead, Bill loves the opportunity to show clients the amazing benefits of Technology in Conference Rooms, Auditoriums, Classrooms, and Training facilities.

Bill loves that in a world that is so large and complex, technology can bring people and ideas together. He jokes about missing out on the donuts and potlucks with his colleagues in Alaska but appreciates that technology otherwise keeps him well informed and connected with his team. He appreciates that technology enables him to effectively meet with clients across the states and enjoys that it also lights up the eyes and minds of engaged children and employees.

Bill Barnes provides consultation, design and services for higher education and enterprise organizations in Idaho and Utah.
