In his spare time, businessman William Cobb provides emergency instruction to first responders, serves an organization that assists military servicemen and their families, and helps make dreams come true for seriously ill children.
His commitment to community and his heart for people, combined with his business education and more than a decade in business development, make William the perfect fit as the new owner of the Express Employment Professionals franchise in Montgomery, AL.
The sound of success
With a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Auburn University-Montgomery, William started his career in pharmaceutical sales. After four years developing strong relationships within the medical community, he spent five years in sales development in the specialized medicine field.
During this time, William saw that medical offices needed a strong partner to manage the relationships between medical offices and their referring physicians, and created Cobb Consulting Company to provide that service.
One day, while listening to the radio, he heard about Express Employment Professionals and realized the company offered the perfect opportunity for his skills, experience and love for helping people.
What he heard led him to research Express, a company with 725 successful franchises, each led by individuals who feel strongly about helping businesses find the right talent and individuals find the right employment.
Sweet Home Alabama

“William has served as director of the Armed Forces Foundation in Alabama, and helps children through the Magic Maker for Magic Moments program,” Jessica said. “He also teaches Emergency First Responder courses and scuba diver training. He’s a great addition to the Express family of franchisees.”
