Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
That can include everything from working with local boards and officials on project approvals to talking to community members about new company projects.
“This job is about 70 percent of what Commfluent was doing,” Williams said. While Commfluent was open, that company worked on projects includng the most recent bond issue for the Eagle County School District and the voter referendums on Solaris in Vail and the Battle Mountain project in Minturn. All three of those ballot measures were approved.
“Our goal as a company is to be as transparent as possible, whether that’s a project or a product,” Williams said. “I believe in this company and where it’s headed, and my job is to make sure the company and the community are getting along as much as possible.”
