Ethical, effective, and professional recruitment team.
Bill Schultz is the owner and founder of Schultz Management Search (previously known as Sales Consultants of Madison, Wisconsin) which opened in 1988.

His vision has become a reality.
Bill is involved in recruiting sales, sales management, and marketing talent for local companies, including startup companies, in the Madison, Wisconsin area and for national companies looking for sales representation throughout the United States. He continues to specialize in particular business segments – healthcare IT software, medical, business-to- business sales, and healthcare marketing.
Bill brings over 20 years of corporate sales, marketing, and general management experience in addition to over 25 years of experience as an executive recruiter of qualified sales and sales management talent for client companies.
