The Historic Trust recently announced that Mike Williams will serve as Interim President and CEO as The Historic Trust (THT) searches for a permanent lead for the growing organization. Stacey Graham, THT board chair remarked “Mike Williams is very collaborative. He is a great resource for facilitating the programs and activities our staff are involved in. His institutional knowledge from more than 12 years serving on our board is critical to making this a smooth transition.”
William’s 50 plus years living in the Vancouver community, 32-year career in communications, and 12 years serving on The Historic Trust board make him well suited to lead THT through this transition. Williams began his career in communications at Cox Cable in Vancouver in 1982. He moved to Comcast, working his way to Senior Director of Sales during his 18-year tenure. Williams first engaged with The Historic Trust through his involvement in the Independence Day fireworks at Fort Vancouver. He had been part of the celebration for 20 years when The Historic Trust took over management of the event. At that time, he joined The Historic Trust’s board. Retired for just one year when duty called, Williams could not pass up the opportunity to help lead The Historic Trust into the future. Williams explained “The Historic Trust is at a pivotal point in time as we continue our mission to inspire civic pride and economic vitality through education, preservation, and celebration of our community’s history. The momentum established by the THT Board is growing and needs to be kept alive. I will help drive that.”
The Historic Trust is working with Scion Executive Search, a search firm that connects executive nonprofit leadership to nonprofit organizations and foundations, to conduct a regional and nation-wide search for a permanent President and CEO. The ideal candidate for the President and CEO position is a visionary business leader skilled in driving organizational success and empowering high-performing staff. “The new President and CEO will guide the organization’s next phase of growth and evolution,” says Williams.
