A native of Maine, Bill Nunan received a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Maine. He received an MBA in Finance from Michigan State University and a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from the University of Michigan. Nunan’s now a die-hard Michigander and Michigan State fan (Go Green!); however when the two Michigan Universities are duking it out in sports, he tries to remain as neutral as possible. He even has co-team branded game day wear!
Throughout his career, Nunan has enjoyed leadership roles in Product Management, Operations, Professional Services, Client Success, Sales, Marketing, and Strategy at several software companies. In these roles, he helped businesses both define and execute successful growth strategies.
Having led software businesses in the automotive, airline, property management, and telecommunications spaces, he enjoys learning new verticals. His engineering background fuels his passion for designing and building innovative solutions that deliver exceptional value to customers and to help them grow and improve operations.
“I am excited to be officially part of the Real Green family. Late last year, I was planning to take a couple of years off to travel, and even built an overland trailer to drive from Alaska to Patagonia. Around that time several different companies, including Real Green, approached me with opportunities. However, it was going to take something extraordinary for me to abandon the lure of the open road and relocate from my home in California. What happened was I fell in love with what I experienced at Real Green Systems.
“There’s something palpable when you walk through the doors at Real Green. Everyone is energized, friendly, helpful. The entire team has one focus—doing what is best for the customer. This customer-centricity is baked into Real Green’s culture, it’s contagious and mirrors my passion for providing exceptional customer support and service. It’s the foundation of a career spanning over 25 years in a number of vertical software companies,” Nunan says of joining the Real Green team.
Prior to joining Real Green, Nunan had his own business serving early-state tech companies. He has also served as President and CEO of PayLease; Senior Vice President of Delivery and Care and Vice President of Strategy and Portfolio Management at Sabre; Senior Vice President of Operations at vAuto. His impressive resume includes: 6-years at the Reynolds and Reynolds Company; member of the finance team at Ford Motor Company; served as the business unit leader at CoreComm, Ltd; and the leader of strategy and corporate development at J.D. Power and Associates.
Nunan’s mission for Real Green is to “Grow like a weed that hasn’t been exposed to one of our customers yet!”
