Seven people have recommended William "Bill" Kisse

"I have known Bill for a number of years and he is many things, but a great person first of all. While he is a successful businessman in several ventures,
he is a delightful person to know and pays attention to people. He has more energy than any ten people and dives headlong into everything that he does.
I don't in any way mean to downplay his business acumen, which is very good, but his character defines him. Bill is outgoing, loyal, attentive, enthusiastic,
can be focused when needed, and persistent. A very fine set of traits."

Al Hahn, CEO, Hahn Consulting, Inc., was a consultant or contractor to William "Bill" at Electronic Systems Services, Inc.

"To whom it may concern. RE: William Kisse (Bill) For those of you who are looking to work with Bill, or be associated with Bill, you’ve picked a real winner.
Bill and I go back a long ways, a least to 1983 and maybe a little back further. I first met Bill when he was one of the owners of Video Labs and Video Labs
was a vendor to me. Next he turned into a customer when Bill and Video Labs became my first software customer to purchase my business application.
Bill helped me add many features to my application in order to make it more universally accepted. After we had my application running at his office,
Bill volunteered to attend my trade show and help me sell my application. We spend many years working together improving my applications integrating it
into his company. Video Labs is still using my application today. Somewhere in the middle of this, Bill referred me to a very large client and that is what
launched me into full time Software Development. Later on, Bill let me store my Trade Show Display and other articles at his offices when I needed to.
Whether Bill was a customer or not, he has always been very supportive and he has shared many ideas with me in order to help me improve my business.
Many times, we have had in-prompt-to to meeting at his office or over lunch to discuss different ideas. I consider Bill to be a shrewd businessman and great
friend. I’ve always appreciated his input. Thanks
