Vincent Williams, MBA, the director of membership and business development for the The Executives’ Club of Chicago, is really into jazz.

What I do when I’m not at work

My three goals for 2019

1. Grow membership by 25 percent.

2. Get appointed to the board of a Fortune 1000 company.

3. Finally clean the garage and become more organized.

My media mix

Playlist: Miles Davis, Cool Jazz, House Music

Magazines: Chief Executive, Black Enterprise, Harvard Business Review

Newspapers: The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post

On my desk right now

The best advice I ever got

As a leader, be clear and transparent.

If I weren’t doing this, I’d …

… seek to make a difference in the lives of today’s disadvantaged youth by teaching and inspiring them to succeed through soft-skills training and education.
