Founder & CEO of Shipt

Bill Smith

Bill Smith, a serial entrepreneur and father of two, founded Shipt in November of 2014 after the arrival of a newborn in Smith’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. He said the idea for Shipt came to him while he and his wife were dealing with the increasingly cumbersome logistics of their own household. Smith has been involved in a number of high-profile ventures in his young professional career, most recently selling a prepaid card services business, Insight Card Services, to GreenDot in 2014.
