Bill Maness has a passion for fostering the growth of entrepreneurship in Wichita. As an entrepreneur himself, Bill makes helping other entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship groups a high priority. He’s a mentor for the e2e Accelerator, has presented at 1 Million Cups and contributes to Startup Grind. Bill says helping entrepreneurs is a way to give back to the community. He started Syndeo Outsourcing in July 2002 after spending three years as a district manager for another outsourcing company. The risk of starting his own business has paid off for Bill with Syndeo in the midst of a record growth period. He also serves on the board of directors for the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations and the Kansas Golf Foundation.
Bill is a devout Wichita State University fan and booster and also is heavily involved with the Wichita Open, serving as an ambassador for the city’s premier golf tournament. He and his wife, Linda, have four adult children and four grandkids.
