Williams appointed as deputy director and general counsel

Jordan L. Williams, an experienced attorney who has held roles in local, state, and federal government, has been named deputy director and general counsel, President and CEO Brian Millner announced today. Williams was selected for the role following a statewide search.

“MCCA is lucky to have someone with Jordan’s experience and expertise,” said Millner. “As a small association it’s vital to have a team of utility players who can successfully fulfill different roles as the needs of the association shift. Having a detail-oriented project manager who can also assist MCCA in staying on top of legal and legislative matters as they arise, Jordan will be a huge asset to our team.”

Williams will serve as director for the Missouri Apprenticeships in Manufacturing Program (MoAMP), a statewide initiative to deliver innovative pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship training programs. Additionally, as general counsel, the first person to hold the role at MCCA, he will provide advice on the broad array of legal issues that face modern, public institutions of higher education to association leadership, college presidents, chancellors, and senior administrators.

“I am honored to start working at MCCA and am especially excited to undertake my role implementing the MoAMP initiative,” said Wiliams. “It has the potential to make a positive impact on so many Missourians’ lives and I am thrilled to be a part of that. I am also hopeful that my legal experience will serve as an additional asset to MCCA and its members.”

Williams has worked in public service for the majority of his legal career, serving at the local, state, and federal level. His most recent role was as a unit leader for the Office of the Missouri Attorney General. He received both his B.A. and Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri.

Williams lives with his wife and two daughters in Columbia, where he coaches tee-ball and spoils his dog.
