Bill Salazar

VP Hospitality
Senior Principal Consultant

Bill is responsible for project execution and delivery involving client organizations in multiple industries. A tireless and insightful problem-solver, Bill’s management and operations know-how and 30+ years of experience in the hospitality and landscape construction spaces allow him to develop credible connections with owners, operators, managers, and employees within all sectors. Prior to joining Magenta Ocean, Bill’s management background includes Corporate Hospitality Trainer and Vice President of Operations In the landscape construction industry.

In addition to his hospitality and landscape construction experience, Bill has been an educator and coach – teaching at various grade levels and coaching San Marino High School Boys’ Varsity Soccer and Girls’ Varsity Soccer and Volleyball to conference championships. He is a sought-after keynote speaker for youth, college, and young adult events.

Bill resides in Long Beach, CA, and in his downtime enjoys going on adventurous excursions and out-of-the-way dining experiences with Jill, his wife of 26 years. For slightly more harrowing considerations, Bill, a longtime jeep owner is just short of fanatical about off-roading – and sometimes takes weekend four-wheeling trips to terrain rich, Arizona. A golfer to boot, he enjoys getting in an occasional round at his favorite golf courses with friends and colleagues.  Raised in Southern California, Bill is an ardent fan of the Dodgers, Lakers, and Rams – and college supporter of USC football and UCLA basketball.

Bill holds a B.A. in Education from Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, Texas where he also played soccer.
