Zach Williams

Company: Venveo
Title: Founder & Chairman

Zach Williams, CEO and founder of Venveo, located right down the road from Pamplin in Blacksburg. Williams graduated in 2008 with a BS in Marketing-Management and a BA in Visual Communications. Before graduating, he built Venveo from his dorm room and after graduating, turned it into the global company that it is today.

Due to his company’s large concentration in the building construction space, he has worked with almost every brand on the aisles of Home Depot and Lowe’s. When asked what his position as CEO includes, he said, “As a CEO, your main objective is to guide the ship and those around you. In other words, to drive the strategic direction of the business and make those around you better than yourself. It’s an incredible responsibility that I’m grateful to have. If I've set up my team and clients up for success and growth, then I know we are moving in the right direction.” Williams says that his greatest goal is greatness, and to get there, he needs to continue learning - which Venveo allows him to do.

Williams has a wife and four children that he loves dearly. He enjoys spending time with them, cooking with them, and staying active. He’s also a big fan of Hokie football! He is most passionate about about people, pushing boundaries and building something significant.
