Bill Upshaw

Chief Executive Officer

Returning to Minneapolis, Bill had always heard positive comments about TPI’s company and culture in the past and was excited to join the team, saying “the people and the culture provide a great platform for success and future growth.”  A direct communicator, Bill enjoys collaboration and holds himself and others to a high standard of accountability. 

Adventure was the name of the game for Bill as a kid, growing up in Northern Louisiana on a horse ranch and enjoying vacations in Colorado as a youngster where he discovered his love of alpine skiing.  After college, Bill moved to Oregon to pursue skiing and worked during the summer as a white-water river guide. He’s since lived in various parts of the US and Europe and now Minneapolis where he’s looking forward to more adventure in the land of 10,000 lakes boating or fishing, listening to music and spending time with friends.

Bill embraces all the Core Values equally and as a new Employee Owner, is excited to be on a team aligned in the pursuit of mutual success.
