Bill Wilshire as Chief Operating Officer
San Francisco, CA — September 9, 2020 Renovata & Company is pleased to announce the placement of Bill Wilshire as chief operating officer of Single Digits, a leading provider of high-speed internet access (HSIA) management and support solutions.
Backed by the private equity investor, GI Partners, Single Digits offers a complete guest internet solution, including IP network design, engineering, professional services, ongoing maintenance, networking monitoring, multi-lingual support, revenue reporting and authentication tracking. The company serves more than 1,600 customers across various industries, including hospitality, property management, healthcare, government, education, travel and more.
Single Digits is positioned for growth with its innovative Broadband Authentication Platform (BAP), which enables properties to tailor their HSIA to their industry’s unique needs.

His skillset spans business integration, mergers and acquisitions, channel management strategy, product planning and account management. He understands how to build and manage field engineering and operations teams—and will complement the two co-founders (chief executive officer and president) and our chief financial officer placement last year.”

Prior to that, he was senior vice president, leading the professional services organization for Core BTS. He has worked as a consulting partner at Cognizant Technology Solutions and served as an advisory board member for the Cisco Partner Technical Advisory Board.
