As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Well regarded for his expertise in the hospitality field, Mr. Wilson lends 10 years of industry experience to his role as the owner of Sharky's Place, an iconic restaurant and sports bar that he purchased from the original owners in 2012. The business is well-known in the Raleigh area, having been featured on TV and in Indy Week, and has won numerous awards, including Best of the Best in the Sports Bar category by WRAL, Best Neighborhood Bar, Best Places to Shoot Pool, and Best Wings in the Triangle, an honor Sharky's has won multiple times. As owner, Mr. Wilson is responsible for maintaining the restaurant's excellence; his specific responsibilities include overseeing operations, checking finances and deposits, and handling radio advertising and other business marketing. He attributes his success to his decision to enter a field where he had an existing knowledge base, allowing him to capitalize on previous strengths, as well as the constant support of his wife, Simone Wilson.

Prior to opening Sharky's Place, Mr. Wilson was a financial advisor serving clients through his own company, Wilco Financial, for 25 years. Earlier in his career, he worked at a marketing and advertising company in New Orleans for eight years. He worked on his master's degree in Texas history from Texas Tech University and a bachelor's degree in history from Sul Ross State University. He is a certified estate planner and was licensed in life insurance and annuities prior to retiring.

A talented athlete, Mr. Wilson grew up as a gifted pool player in Midland, Texas and later excelled as a college football player and a national champion power lifter, taking Second Place at the 1979 National Championships in this first attempt and winning the 275-Pound Class at the National Championships in 1980. Later in his life, he hosted a weekly radio show in New Orleans called "The Mr. Bill Show," with a spot-on impression of then President Bill Clinton. Randy wrote M.U.L.E (Most Unreal Lifting Experience) co-authored with Dr. Fred Hatfield and Mike Flynt, a book far ahead of its time in training Fast Twitch muscle training. He and his wife have recently become active in the real estate industry and have found success with rental properties. Outside of work, Mr. Wilson enjoys spending time with his sons Nicolas and Logan and grandchildren Ford and Collins.
