CINCINNATI (December 12, 2017) — Tom Williams was recently presented with the 2017 Jacob E. Davis Volunteer Leadership Award from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF).

The Jacob E. Davis Volunteer Leadership Award, presented since 1987, recognizes the leadership and generosity of time provided by an individual or couple committed to improving the quality of life in Greater Cincinnati.

“Tom Williams carries on the tradition of civic engagement exemplified by Jake Davis,” said Ellen M. Katz, President/CEO of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. “We were pleased to be able to present this award to someone who gives so generously in both time and treasure.” 

Williams is president/CEO of North American Properties and co-principal owner/vice chairman/treasurer for the Cincinnati Reds. He currently serves as a chair of the Child Poverty Collaborative and of the Development and Finance Committee of the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC). He also serves on many boards, including JobsOhio, Cintrifuse, Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC), Cincinnati Equity Fund, Regional Economic Development Initiative, Accelerate Great Schools, and Teach for America. 

The award was named in honor of the late Jake Davis (1905 – 2003), who served as Kroger’s CEO, U.S. Representative from Ohio, and GCF’s first Governing Board Chair and Volunteer Director from 1978 to 1987.
