Founder and CEO of CurtCo Media, William “Bill” Curtis has a 30-year history of building , acquiring, transitioning, and successfully divesting quality media assets. Of the more than 70 brands Bill has guided through launch or turn around, his favorite venture was Robb Report magazine, which he acquired in 2001. Under his leadership, the brand became the highly influential and respected benchmark for luxury media. By the time it was sold in 2015, it had grown into a digital-first brand with 18 international editions, numerous websites, video businesses, e-newsletters, dozens of profitable events, and an exclusive membership club.
In addition to Robb Report, Bill owned, operated (and successfully divested) media groups in technology fields, such as Home Office Computing, Home Theater, Mobile Computing, personal wealth management with Worth, and a whole series of luxury titles like Showboats International, Art & Antiques, Home and many more. He also acquired and transitioned regional titles such as San Diego Magazine, Gulf Shore Life, and Sarasota Magazine.
Today, Bill and his team are building an exciting new media company focused on the fast-growing world of podcasting. This new platform will celebrate core consumer passions, while entertaining sophisticated audiences with in-depth, authoritative discussions as well as high-quality story-telling through inspired audio and video programming. You’ll find CurtCo’s new shows hosted on Apple’s iTunes as well as all other leading podcasting platforms.
Bill resides in Malibu with his wife Lisa (with whom he has shared the past 34 years). They share three amazing children, two grand children and one puppy that all fill him with love & pride.
