Considered one of the most powerful minority business leaders in America, Williams has been a member of Tuck's Board of Overseers since 2008 and became its first African-American chair in 2012.
Williams has described himself as a pragmatic risk-taker. Eight years out of Tuck at age 33, he left a high-profile investment firm to start his own company: Williams Capital Group. His investment bank and asset management firm has had multi-billion dollar clients such as IBM, Wal-Mart, and General Electric.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
"The teamwork, the broad perspective, the willingness to work hard and get the job done, the leadership skills without a sense of entitlement—that's how I try to run my life and my organization."
