Lori Williams

The Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce
President / CEO

Lori Williams is the President and CEO 

Her definite chief aim is to create change in the thoughts and minds of those around her to inspire growth.

"I believe that the only constant in life is change ... every business will experience periods of growth until it reaches a plateau. At every plateau, decisions for change must be made to inspire growth once more. If a business "stays the same" and the decision for change is not made, a business declines". 

Lori started her career in outside sales in 1982. She quickly moved to Branch Management, Area (multi-office) Management to Regional. Her training career started as Area Vice President/Franchise Support. Supporting 43 offices in 5 states. She is an Agent of Change - Trainer, Public Speaker, Published Writer and Business Consultant.

Lori is very strategic in thought with the ability to see various possibilities turning thoughts and ideas into action. She can quickly assess the unique qualities in people and how they can work more productively together.  An incredible forward thinker with a constant focus on changes ahead and how to adapt to those changes.
