Since 2021, Kevin L. Williams has found great success as a Global Alliance Manager at Schneider Electric, an Atlanta, Georgia-based company that offers energy management and industrial automation solutions, through which he supports such high-scale clients as Hewlett Packard and provides innovative products with uninterrupted power supply and distribution to the market for his customers. A strong collaborator, salesman, consultant, presenter, and leader, he built his expertise in the field over the course of a decade. Before advancing to a managerial position, he worked at the company as an industrial sales executive and an end-user automation sales executive. He previously worked as a Southeast Regional Sales Manager at DSI/Dynamatic, an application engineer-turned-business development manager at Mitchell Sales Agency, and a System Technician II at Johnson Controls.
Dedicating himself to the U.S. Navy for nearly a decade, Mr. Williams attributes a majority of his success to his years spent in the military and the foundational knowledge in electronics he acquired there—which, he said, set him on his professional course and eventual accomplishments. In addition to his military training, he completed coursework in computer and information systems security and information assurance at Georgia Southern University, and ultimately attained a bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from Strayer University and an Executive MBA from the Michael J. Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University.
Outside of his primary endeavors, Mr. Williams finds immense fulfillment in mentoring males between the ages of 11 and 18 through his involvement with 100 Black Men of North Metro Atlanta, Inc., with which he’s been involved since 2016. In this capacity, he acquaints them with successful professionals from various fields and strives to instill in them the drive to pursue higher education. As a testament to his impact in his role, he was once refueling his car on his way to church when one of his mentees approached him and expressed his appreciation with a sincere “Thank you,” which filled him with a great sense of satisfaction. In addition, he serves as an adviser for The Collegiate 100, an extension of the organization’s mission across college campuses in the United States, at his alma mater, Kennesaw State University.
Guided by the motto of “What they see is what they’ll be,” Mr. Williams wishes to expand his mentorship initiatives in the future—ultimately aiming to enhance his own accomplishments to pave the way for greater opportunities for others. He also aspires for his own professional growth by assuming a leadership role within the corporate landscape someday. He’s the proud father of three children, who he considers his “constant source of motivation.”
