Chrisie and Bill Ballard

BNI Arizona South

Chrisie is a Tucson Native who loves traveling with her family, shooting pool, playing cards and watching the Denver Broncos! Bill is a Kansas City native who enjoys scuba diving, shooting pool, traveling & watching the Kansas City Chiefs. Yes, to answer your question, things get interesting in their home when those teams play each other. Together they share 4 bonus children and 1 daughter along with 3 grandchildren. Together they are working to build their business here in Southern Arizona which covers 6 counties, including Pinal, Pima, Greenlee, Cochise, Graham & Santa Cruz Counties. BNI is the largest referral organization in the world and is celebrating 20 years here in Southern Arizona this year. They have 14 Chapters from Sierra Vista to Maricopa and have nearly 300 Members. Their Members range from the solo-entrepreneur to owners of large companies as well as employees of everything in between. They pride themselves on creating a positive, supportive, structured place for all Members to come together, train each other as a marketing team and then have each other’s back in passing quality referrals that result in business. In the last 12 months their Members have passed over 16,000 referrals which resulted in over $6.5 Million in closed business for the communities that they touch. Chrisie and Bill are passionate about the opportunity to continue to build BNI here so that their Members not only make more money but fulfill their dreams. “We help send Members kids to college, we help Members live passionate and amazing lives, not just because they’ve made more money but because their quality of business relationships has been elevated, and they are happier and more satisfied people. We love what we get to do each day and look forward to building a more stable business environment in all of Southern Arizona through the Givers Gain philosophy.”
