OREM, Utah, October 2, 2014 – Fishbowl CEO David K. Williams is now the President of the National Advisory Council (NAC) for the Woodbury School of Business (WSB) at Utah Valley University (UVU).
Williams has served on the NAC for several years, and on May 2, 2014 he was awarded the Excellence in Leadership Award by WSB.
In his new role as NAC President, Williams will be an important voice offering ideas and insights into how WSB can recruit new benefactors, update programs, and keep its curriculum relevant.
“Serving energizes me and our team at Fishbowl,” Williams said. “There is so much talent and possibility in the students who attend UVU. I look forward to developing and building with them. Together, I am confident we can achieve significant results for the student, UVU, and our community as whole.”
The NAC is made up of business leaders from across the state of Utah. Their responsibilities include:
