Why Selected: Williams is responsible for new business development at Triad Signs (a division of PIP Triad). After his first year, the company’s sales increased by 354 percent. In 2017, the sales grew another 130 percent. Williams is a volunteer firefighter with the Swepsonville Fire Department and creator of the Legs for Lungs 5K that raised more than $15,000 for the Denise Marie Flaherty Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit in Elon that helps families fighting cancer.

If you could roll back time, what moment would you revisit to experience again or to change? I would go back to my college years and go further with my studies. Education is much harder to obtain later in life and knowledge is one of those things you can’t have enough of.

How can the Triad better retain young professionals? Communicating with younger employees about how they fit into the company’s current and long-range plans could contribute significantly to overall productivity and provide constructive criticism and career advice.

Most meaningful volunteer activity? Being apart of the Swepsonville Fire Department allows me to serve my community and help others in times of need.

I am passionate about… helping others. Kindness is an investment that always pays back dividends.

What is your favorite game and why? Phase 10. I always beat my mother-in-law (even though she cheats).
