Brian Williams

A passion for people and purpose.

As the Director of Talent, Brian Williams manages REDF’s human resources practices, employee relations, and talent management strategy. Additionally he heads REDF’s recruitment and diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Brian has a passion for helping others reach their full potential both personally and professionally. He’s been able to apply that passion and help employees become their best selves across industries, including financial services, health care, and government services – with expertise in employee relations, training and development, and recruitment and staffing. Prior to joining REDF, Brian worked at WestEd and Westside Community Services where he restructured the human resources department and successfully negotiated a labor contract that took into account diversity and inclusion across the agency.

Outside of work, Brian is an avid cyclist and has completed the AIDS Life Cycle five times! At home you can find him cooking up homemade stews with spices sourced from Morocco or preparing his favorite dish, Boeuf Bourguignon.
