Bill Valway, CEO
From humble beginnings to a bright future. Starting in the industry working for another window tinting company, Bill quickly expanded his knowledge and skill set. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, he saw potential in himself and a lack of leadership in the company he was working for. After acquiring the skills he needed, Bill left the company he was working for and set out on his own. With one work van and some business cards he began to build reputation and serviced dealerships/stereo shops on site and out of his parents garage. Today, he runs a rapidly growing company with three diverse divisions.
Tim Cooke, COO
Tim knew Bill through mutual friends and was in need of some tinting service when he bought a new truck. He didn’t have the money to pay Bill to tint his truck immediately, so he waited and kept in touch with him. After running into each other a couple of times, Tim started asking about positions opening up to work with Bill. Bill finally caved and said he would give him a shot. Within 12 months, he was running around on tinting jobs, continuing to build the brand. Today, Tim manages a full team of installers and continues to help build the AP name.
The AP team is always growing. Whether it’s new industry practices, the latest products on the market, or additional team members, our numbers are climbing. Absolute Perfection now has two additional divisions – AP Media and Absolute Perfection Vehicle Wrapping and Applied Graphics.
