Meet The Face Behind ExemptOrg Business Management
I'm Richard Williams, the Chief Operating Officer of ExemptOrg Business Management. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me.
From a young age, I discovered my natural gift for problem-solving. Being from a long line of entrepreneurs, it was not strange to find I had the aptitude for numbers and business. After high school, I worked in banking for a few years to finance my college goals. After college, I discovered the wonderful world of nonprofits, accounting, and management consulting services. I relocated, returned to college, and completed a Bachelor's in accounting at the City University of New York and later a Master's in business administration at Louisiana State University. I have enjoyed the opportunities and knowledge gained providing accounting and advisory services across industries and my time in public accounting. My certifications attest to my core professional value; I am a certified public accountant (CPA) because I believe quality is not optional, a certified lean practitioner (CLP) because I enjoy turning weaknesses and threats into strengths and opportunities, and a certified nonprofit accounting professional (CNAP) because I enjoy making a difference.
ExemptOrg Business Management is a group of financial professionals dedicated to providing the highest quality of financial services with a human touch helping to reduce redundancies, inconsistency providing just as much or as little services required by clients to achieve their goals.
Our services are customized to enhance the quality of service and implement tried and tested best practices while leveraging technology to strengthen small to large organizations' functional and strategic operations. Our team has been providing financial services like bookkeeping, accounting, management consulting, and strategy development, providing a vast resource of combined knowledge, skillset, and expertise to enhance our client's business. We also leverage technology to optimize and standardize numerous functions to improve efficiencies and data analysis.
The part of my work I most enjoy is helping clients to realize tangible, measurable milestones and reach their goals. I find it incredibly fulfilling to assist clients through their startup stage to exceeding growth expectations. My business philosophy is every client, regardless of size, deserves the same high standard of service provided to Fortune 500 companies.
As a team leader, I believe what sets me apart is my commitment to quality and fundamental respect for others, recognizing we are all individuals with different perspectives shaped by life experiences. Diversity and inclusion are essential values embedded within our organizational culture.
We attribute our success to numerous factors, but the ability to identify and solve clients' actual needs, rather than mechanically supplying requested services, making all the difference, is the most repeated and thus visible sentiment expressed by our clients.
Helping clients to transition from an undesirable to their desired operational state has given me immense satisfaction over the years.
When I am not at work, I have a few different hobbies and interests. However, I most enjoy spending quality time with family, traveling, woodworking, and community activism.
I also believe in giving back to society and, as part of that belief, I help educate individuals about the basics of finance. I think too many students are leaving high school without the fundamental financial knowledge necessary for critical life choices, and support efforts towards education in this area is mandatory.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
