Mr Williams has led the transformation of ADIA’s legal structure to a company limited by guarantee, which puts governance arrangements in place to properly manage the organisation’s sustained growth.

He has also led ADIA to its strong financial position today through his budgeting skills and support in developing long-term financial plans, said ADIA national president Phil Jolly.

During his tenure, he has taken a lead role in securing reforms to how dental products are regulated in Australia, Mr Jolly said. The ADIA was also recognised for its ability to influence government decision making, having been named the 2017 Association of The Year under Mr William’s leadership.

Mr Williams finishes up at the end of the year.
