Tom S Williams
Tom received his BA from Duke University '77 and his MBA from the University of North Carolina in 1982. He then spent the 1980's in New York as a Vice President in Private Banking at Bankers Trust Company and as Managing Director at East Rock Partners, a boutique banking firm that specialized in investing in alternative energy companies. While in New York, Tom also served as the President of the Duke University Metropolitan New York Alumni Association.
Tom formed Williams Management (WM) in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 1991. During the 1990's WM was retained by several early stage U.S. businesses to create and implement business plans and assist in the raising of capital. While operating WM, Williams also created Lone Eagle Corporation (LEC), which assisted non-profits within the local Jackson Hole community successfully plan and produce major fundraising events.
In 2003, Williams moved from Jackson Hole in order to manage Rock Creek Restaurants (RC), a group of two restaurants in metropolitan Washington, DC that he co-owned. RC focused on creating nutritionally balanced meals with fresh ingredients and fewer calories. The endorsement of the concept by the director of the NIH at the time, led to the decision to base RC within the District of Columbia.
In 2011 Williams sold RC and journeyed back to his Winston-Salem, NC birthplace where he took over as the 24/7 caregiver for his 90-year-old parents. With the passing of his parents late in 2015, he began researching the idea of relaunching WM in Winston-Salem. In his role as caregiver and then executor, Williams became aware of Alternative Dispute Resolution. Given the business and family communication skills he had developed over the years, Tom decided to offer mediation services through WM. He expects to be a certified Superior Court Mediator in early 2018 at which time he will relaunch WM as Williams Mediation & Management (WMM) in Winston-Salem.
