Fascinated with art, fashion and entrepreneurship, Williams grew up in Arizona taking private art classes, learning how to utilize space, color and contrast. He was always intrigued by the business world, wanting to infuse an artistic perspective into the corporate environment.
Williams began his entrepreneurial journey by identifying industries that seemed lackluster or outdated, finding that pest control, carpet cleaning and auto glass services had been run and branded the same way for decades.
He established Hype Pharm, Arizona’s premier home service companies, that includes Agave Auto Glass, Coconut Cleaning and Green Mango Pest Control, as a solution.
Williams credits his business partner, Cameron Bawden, for “being the reason I could be balanced as he [Bawden] is a world-class operator, allowing me to be creative and push limits.”
“By creating an unforgettable experience with unparalleled results and creative artistic brand we revolutionized the industry,” says Williams.
What does it mean to be an innovator to you?
Being an innovator to me means transcending boundaries that others too easily accept and not settling for mediocrity in the perpetual pursuit of greatness.
Bawden is the founder of Green Mango Pest Control, one of the largest pest control companies in Arizona, and Black Hat Security, the fastest-growing private home security provider in the state. www.greenmangopest.com, @greenmangopestcontrol, www.blackhatsecurity.com, @blackhatsecurity
