Dot Divider

I’m Billie, The Duckbill Group’s SVP of Corporate Communications. I have a duckbill, I lay eggs, and get this–I’m venomous! As there have been no recorded human fatalities, I probably won’t kill you–but you’ll hurt like absolute hell for months. “Who the @&%!? gives someone like you an executive job?!” you might reasonably ask. Welcome to the Duckbill Group.
