Bill Bradfield


Bill Bradfield has more than 30 years of executive experience in the software, professional services and telecommunications industries. In 2004, Mr. Bradfield founded PerceptIS to provide best-in-class, affordable information technology services to not-for-profits based in discrete geographic regions. As CEO, he and the PerceptIS team have developed a unique “local-outsourced” business model that contributes to the growth of local economies by employing regional talent in jobs with long-term career growth. Since the late 1980’s, Mr. Bradfield has led seven enterprises that have capitalized on mobility and technology trends and realized growth through innovative strategic partnerships and sound management and execution. From 1994 to 1999 he led Advantage Communication’s strategic technology planning and business development services to colleges and universities. He authored the IT Strategic Plan for California State University at Monterey Bay and was tapped by the Chancellor and CIO of the California State University System comprising 23 campuses to guide and manage the development of a system-wide IT Strategic Plan and Technology Infrastructure Initiative. That initiative involved developing teams of corporate giants such as Microsoft, GTE, Fujitsu and Hughes. With the System facing state budget shortfalls, Mr. Bradfield crafted the largest Public/Private Cooperative Partnership in Higher Education, lining up $10.9 billion in commitments of donated services over 10 years from major global IT corporations to fund this public investment.
