Prior to joining LIFE Outreach International in 2023, Mr. Williams' first leadership role was as a Quality Assurance lead; over the course of five years, he gained experience at Zix Corp, Skywire Software, and finally ARGO Data Resource Corporation, where he focused on Quality Assurance for implementation services. Thereafter, in 2010, he transitioned to the position of project consultant at Odyssey Information Services before moving to CA Technologies, where he took on the role of Senior Software Development Test Engineer. Several years later, Mr. Williams moved to GameStop to apply his previous experience as a Quality Assurance Lead before returning to the role of Senior Software Development Test Engineer at CCH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wolters Kluwer North America.

In 2016, Mr. Williams continued on at Wolters Kluwer, rising to fulfill the position of Manager of Software Development for the company's United States tax and accounting division.
