    Bill Burnett Owner

    Bill Burnett has always been an entrepreneur at heart. His highly competitive nature helped him launch Streamline Events, a nationally recognized event management company. The company manages triathlon, running, cycling and open water swimming events yielding over 15,000 participants annually in New England, Florida and Michigan. Streamline has created the fastest to sell out sprint triathlon in the country in Cohasset, MA which has helped raise over $1.2 million in fundraising for Type 1 Diabetes. As a former All-American swimmer at Ohio Wesleyan University, Bill has a passion for swimming that has crossed over into his professional life. Seeing a need for quality swim lessons in the metro Boston area, Bill and his former teammate, college roommate and business partner, Scott Hedges, are excited to bring Goldfish Swim School to Braintree. bill.burnett@goldfishss.com
