Williams takes helm of Roane State’s Small Business Development Center

A local business consultant with vast experience has been named the director of Roane State’s Tennessee Small Business Development Center.

Stephen Williams, well known in the Oak Ridge and Roane State service area, began his new duties earlier this year in his office at the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce, 1400 Oak Ridge Turnpike.

He replaces long-time director Jutta Bangs, who has taken another job.

“I’m really excited about being a part of Roane State and their efforts with workforce development,” Williams said. “I’ll be able to contribute what I’ve learned in more than 35 years in business and owning businesses.”

“Stephen’s rich history in the small business arena as well as his vast network of business contacts will make him a strong asset in his new position,” said Roane State Director of Workforce Training Kim Harris.
