Xavier Williams, a 30-year veteran of AT&T and a two-time Wash100 Award winner, has been appointed chief executive officer of Network Wireless Solutions, a company that offers services to carriers and telecommunications contractors.
White shared his satisfaction with the company he built from the ground up and the staff who have assisted in its establishment.
“With Xavier’s proven history as a results-oriented leader and motivator of people across a diverse set of functions, I know that our team and customers will be in great hands,” White added.
At AT&T, Williams held a number of senior-level positions, including president of the government solutions and national business divisions, president of global public sector and wholesale markets and president of business operations.
He also held the roles of executive vice president of global customer service and senior vice president of service management.
The executive’s last job at the company was president of public sector and FirstNet, in which he directed dealings with government and education agencies and first responders, work that likely made him an ideal candidate for the public sector-facing activities of NWS.
“I am honored to join NWS at such an exciting time for the industry,” said Williams, continuing that he anticipates fruitful collaborations with the company’s executive leadership and its board of directors, as well as the team at Grain Management, the communications investment firm that owns NWS.
Williams has earned also the distinction of Black Enterprise’s 2017 list of the Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America. His reported expertise spans finance, product management, strategy and sales. Williams is also practiced in human resources, global operations and customer service.
