I win my bet with Bill King

by Philip F. Jacobus, CEO | April 16, 2012
Bill and Nancy King
Bill is one of my oldest friends in the business. He was the first guy to recommend that I attend RSNA in 1980. At the time, he was president of LINC Equipment Services and we worked together to license the sale of GE 8800 CT scanners in China.

Bill was a real innovator and worked for Marty Zimmerman, the founder of the LINC Group.

Those of you who know Bill know that he left Link to start his own company, King Equipment Services, to refurbish medical trailers, a business which he eventually sold to his son, Todd.

New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

After selling to Todd, Bill and his wife, Nancy, moved to Sparks, Nevada. I caught up recently with Bill to see if I would win the bet I made with him that he would never be able to retire.

Sure enough, Bill tells me that in addition to working on his high performance cars, he spends time helping people from around the world that have known him from his long career with their high-end imaging needs.

Sparks, Nevada sounds pretty nice. Bill tells me that for the most part, the temperature is never above 90 degrees, never below 20 degrees and there is hardly any humidity. It seems to me like a dream come true, living in a beautiful climate, driving a high performance V8, and helping old friends locate the equipment they need.

Bill told me he had an extra bedroom so I think I might move out and join him.
