Williams, who will serve a one-year term, succeeds Dr. George Whitehead.
Williams, a 1978 graduate of the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s in accounting, currently operates his own financial consulting service where he serves as an external controller for 12 clients.
Williams said that his goals for the coming year will include enhancing the club’s service to community, to increase membership and to continue finding ways to make Rotary enjoyable for the nearly 100 members of the club, which has been in existence since 1920.
In ending his term, Whitehead, a professor at Salisbury University, shared his appreciation with the membership.
“It was a true honor to be given the opportunity to serve as president of the Rotary Club of Salisbury,” said Whitehead. “Many of the projects the club has participated in have gone to help our local community this past year, and for that I am extremely proud of this terrific group of men and women.”
Those projects have included: providing back packs filled with schools supplies to more than 600 local children through a partnership with the other Salisbury Rotary clubs and the Christian Shelter; construction of wheel chair ramps, sponsorship of the YMCA’s Healthy Us program, exceeding by 10 percent the club’s contribution goal to Rotary’s annual fund, $7,000 provided in scholarships to our local students; dictionaries provided to all third graders in the county, participation in the Salisbury Salvation Army Red Kettle drive, providing assistance and meeting space for both local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, and recognition of Vernon Rivers with the club’s annual 4-Way Test award.
