Ron Williams


While Mr. Williams is technically relatively new to CB&A, he worked with the firm in its infancy and helped develop the operating methodology that has led to our growth and success. His public sector career began as a budget analyst for the City of Miami and culminated as the City Manager for Palmetto Bay (an affluent suburb of Miami, FL with 24,000 residents) and then for Live Oak (a rural city of 7,000 about 100 miles west of Jacksonville, FL).

Along the way, he served in high level positions in the juvenile justice, public works, and general services. What excites him now is finding the people you need to fill your key positions, and he is exceptionally good at it. Ron has a Bachelor of Science in Management and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of West Florida. He has also taught at Miami Dade College and in the County's public school system.
