Hailing from Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Larry M. Williams served a tour in Vietnam. He returned home, served and is still serving in a variety of civilian functions such as the VFW, American Legion and Church affiliations. This reflects an abridged summary of his functions. Retail Men’s Clothing: spent some time in retail sales and customer relations;

Opportunity Industrialization Center (OIC): Working with Rev. Sullivan at the OIC, Mr. Williams taught a course called Life Skill 101. The objective of the course was to orientate the young people at the Center the requisite skill sets needed in life to help them look beyond inconvenience and temporal circumstances of life and be able to gravitate towards calculated behaviors that help them overcome the challenges of adulthood. At the OIC, Mr. Williams also developed training program for employee retention. Under this program, the U.S. Department of Labor recognized the OIC for attaining the highest retention rate nationwide. Furthermore, he did recruitment for Fortune 500 companies; J Lovell Consultancy: At the Lovell Consulting Firm, Mr. Williams conducted Sensitivity Awareness Training and continued the recruitment efforts for Fortune 500 companies; Fort Belvoir, Virginia: Mr. Williams returned as a civilian to work for the military at Fort Belvoir where he first served as Dispatcher for the base. He was promoted to serve as Motor Pool Officer and then to Installation Transportation Officer. In this position, he oversaw 600 employees both military and civilians. His functions included Response, Mobilization, Logistics, Railway Maintenance, Helicopters Maintenance, Logistics & Transportation for 5 ROTC units, and Energy Supply (to ensure that the coal supply remains stable at the Pentagon and Capitol Hill). As Installation Transportation Officer, Mr. Williams was responsible for the conversion of GSA and DoD fleet of vehicles. His review and analysis of the fleet utilization, coordination, tracking, and maintenance programs at both Agencies of Government led to the implementation of a simplified Integration and Conversion of both fleets leading to substantial costs savings ($ Billions) to the GSA and DoD. His efforts in instituting the program simplified fleet management and saved billions; Class ‘A’ General Contractor, Commonwealth of Virginia: A Class “A” General Contraction designation is the highest classification in its category and allows the holder to accomplish a variety of General Contractor’s functions. In this designation, Mr. Williams built and installed Custom Fire Places and Chimneys. He also did contractor’s job at Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC. During this period, he served as the Executive Director of the Washington DC Minority Contractors Association; Consultancy: Consulting with Dr. Emmanuel Aqua, University of Maryland, Eastern Shore, Mr. Williams was instrumental in creating opportunities for overseas travel to the Continent of Africa. The first trip was to Yaoundé, Capital City of the Republic of Cameroon, West Central Africa. The trip was successful because it led to the introduction of the African Fish called Tilapia into the United States of America. Today, Tilapia is found in almost any market in America forming a part of the American seafood selection. The Republic of Cameroon received a Cannery Operating Facility to help preserve food and generate marketable commodities.


Other African Trips: Subsequent to the trip to Cameroon, Mr. Williams has concluded numerous trips to the Continent in 20 years meeting and connecting with individuals, Government officials, business leaders, marketers, farmers, miners, students, and folks in general. In sum, during those visits, Mr. Williams has shared his insights and received insights from his interactions. He has developed a great passion for the plight of the people of Africa and is committed to working to help resolve most of the continent’s pressing issues using a new kind of creative thinking to help solve existing problems. These problems include but are not limited to Inadequate Infrastructure, Technology Transfer, Power Generation and Distribution, Food Security, Communication, Education and Healthcare Delivery the solution of which together or in part can help assure that Africans play a meaningful role in the fate of Africa. Trips to different countries have had this focus in varying degrees. He traveled to Nigeria (North & South): Met with Nigerian King Alfred Diete-Spiff in the South. Togo: He met with Government Officials and business leaders and concluded major contracts for development. He has a company in Togo called LRWJ SA.


Liberia: He met with Government and business leaders, miners, farmers, market women, to discuss business concepts. He also met with tribal leaders and Zoë’s (Country Doctors) and received high honors in decision making. He helped to establish the Liberia Holding Corporation, Inc. a wholly owned and operated company with a mission to help Liberians establish small to median businesses to help lift them from poverty. Ethiopia: A trip to Ethiopia led to Mr. Williams’ discovery that his lineage is Ethiopian connected to the deposed Emperor Haile SELASSIE who ruled the country in the 1930s. Mali: He met with Government Officials and business leaders. Has a business partner and is a member of a mining concession.
