Bill’s professional career flourished along with his development of Success North Dallas, first as owner of Wallace Financial Group—a provider of business continuation planning, insurance and financial strategies and estate and family protection—and, later, as Chairman and CEO of The Wallace Companies, a consulting firm specializing in capital development and executive management strategies.
