Will Perry – Founder & CEO

Will Perry is the CEO of Worldwide Power Products, the power-generation equipment provider he founded out of a spare bedroom in his townhouse in 2008.  Perry led the Worldwide Power Products team to be named one of Forbes Magazine’s 100 Most Promising Companies in 2011 as well as earning a spot in the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America for four consecutive (2012-15) years.

Today, Perry oversees many aspects of the organization, but his role is primarily focused on key customer and vendor relationships as well as inventory acquisition and growth opportunities.

Prior to founding WPP, Will was the leading salesperson for another power generation company. While there he helped them establish worldwide relationships, completing business transactions internationally with dozens of firms.

A life-long entrepreneur, Perry started his first business when he was in high school.  Later, while completing his degree in Economics at The University of Texas at Austin, he developed and operated several small businesses.

Perry has been recognized by the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) as Houston’s Entrepreneur of the Year (2011-2012), and by the Houston Business Journal as one of Houston’s 40 under 40 (2012). He currently serves on the board of several community and professional service organizations including Bridges To Life and is an active member of Young Presidents Organization (YPO – Texas Gulf Coast Chapter).

Will enjoys spending time with his wife and three children as well as hunting, fishing, and playing golf.

Alec Mize – COO

Alec Mize has assisted and advised Worldwide Power Products since 2009, the company’s second year of operation.  He acted as an advisory director for most of that time and further assisted on special projects as needed and as his time allowed.  This activity has resulted in the development of sound, trusting relationships with many of the company’s personnel and an understanding of the management processes and the impact of the company’s growth upon those processes.  In January of 2019, shortly after retirement from the operation of his own companies, Alec joined Worldwide as COO in order to relieve some of the management duties from other senior executives and thus allow them to focus more on customer needs and continued growth.

Alec has extensive experience in all areas of managing rapidly growing small and medium sized businesses, particularly in industries involving skilled labor.  Over the past 35 years he has held significant ownership and management positions in 4 different pipeline construction companies, some of which worked all over the world, performed contracts of up to $100 million, and were among the largest pipeline contractors in the United States.  As opportunities arose, he also started or purchased businesses in related pipeline service fields including cathodic protection, hydrostatic testing and equipment rentals.  As an investor, he has been involved with other unrelated startups including the first on-line defensive driving company in the U.S.  As his companies were occasionally sold, he periodically spent brief periods consulting for long-time business friends and associates, including banks.  His overall experience in strategic planning, general management, project management, and virtually all business and investment aspects of corporate growth is extensive.

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Alec spent 10 years with the international CPA firm of Ernst & Young where he was manager-in-charge of international tax issues for the Southwest region of the U.S. at the time of his leaving.

Alec, a native of Ruston, Louisiana, attended LSU (Baton Rouge) on several academic scholarships and received a BS degree in Finance and Accounting.  He has lived in Houston for 45 years where he enjoys activities with his wife and married daughters and, as often as possible,  relaxing “in the country” on weekends.
