"I have been a serial entrepreneur for 30 years. Rick Williams joined the board of one of my previous companies as the first independent (non-investor associated) board member and eventually became chairman of the board at a most critical time. Investor and employee shareholders experienced his careful and balanced approach to strategic questions. His excellent and patient communication skills made it easy for board members and employees of very different backgrounds to participate in complex decision making processes."Email Us

“Rick Williams served with me for four years on the Board of FairWay Financial - US, a leading-edge capital markets software company when I was Board Chair and acting CEO. Rick is an intelligent and high energy colleague who takes initiatives to advance the objectives of an organization at the Board level. Rick was an active and creative Board member, and I would welcome serving with him again on the Board of another high potential company. I strongly recommend Rick for other Board positions.”
