As part of the original leadership team with his parents, David and Anna Williams, Richard helped grow the company to six locations and 106 employees. In 2016, Richard became the CEO to lead Lineage into the future and launched the Lineage Foundation to support mission projects. Richard and his wife of 29 years, Tiffany, have three sons – Ian, Mason and Cole. Between guiding Lineage, investing time and resources in local national and international missions and his involvement in his church, Richard’s plate is joyfully full.
