William Seippel, Chief Executive Officer & Chairman
Will is the perfect example of someone who has turned a passion into a career. He’s been an avid collector since childhood, beginning with baseball cards and continuing into adulthood with Kentucky Long Rifles. Will combined this passion for collecting with his multi-faceted background in business to establish WorthPoint®, the leading online resource for collectors, in 2007.
Will has more than 25 years of financial and operational experience, serving as CFO of MIVA; VP and CFO for Airgate PCS; CFO and COO for Digital Commerce Corporation; CFO for Global Telesystems Groups and CFO for Landmark Graphics Corporation. During his career, he has negotiated more than 20 acquisitions and played a leading role in structuring complex transactions that raised $5 billion in capital. Two of those ventures received the prestigious Institutional Investor Deal of the Year Award.
Will has also served as a consultant to various boards of directors on mergers and acquisitions as well as strategic business and financial planning. He has a bachelor’s of science from George Mason University, where he serves as chairman of the advisory board for the School of Management, and a master’s in business administration from American University.
Will continues to collect baseball cards and Kentucky Long Rifles, in addition to Lionel Trains and Colt 45s.
