I’m pleased to introduce Ward Williams, National Accounts Representative with MWI Direct.
What aspect of your job do you enjoy most?
I enjoy the life cycle of print/direct mail. From concept, solution building, refinement, production, and delivery.
What’s the best thing that’s happened to you since you started working with MWI?
I became a grandfather in 2018.
What do you wish other people knew about MWI?
The dedication and behind the scenes efforts of our employees at MWI Direct is second to none. Everyone here is focused on exceeding our customers’ expectations for work quality, accuracy, & deadlines.
Outside of Work
What do you do when you aren’t working?
When I’m not working, I’m either spending time with my family or running.
Tell us a bit about your family.
I’ve been married to my wife Lisa for 30-years. We have a growing family; daughter (Ella), that will soon be a high-school senior at Pius X High School, a son (Samuel), daughter-in-law (Caitie) (both graduates of University of Nebraska) and their soon to be toddler son (Colson).
How do you balance your career at MWI and family?
I don’t believe there is work/life balance. Depending upon the day and priorities, sometimes you need to spend more time/effort focused on one or the other. Long-term family is my priority. I come in early each day to make sure I have time at the end of the day for family. I have the full support of my family if I need to work late or on weekends to meet my work commitments.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you…
I won’t eat raw tomatoes but do like salsa and ketchup.
Before MWI, what was the most interesting job you’ve ever had?
I had a one-day college job as a photographer’s assistant for Sports Illustrated. They paid me to go to a University of Nebraska football game and carry gear for one of their photographers.
Do you have a favorite newspaper, publication, or blog?
I like Twitter, as it allows me to follow my favorite topics and newsmakers.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in the last five years?
The most important thing I’ve learned in the last five years is that every day is a blessing and to enjoy life each day.
