Bob Williams was selected as the Chamber Ambassador of the Quarter due to his high-attendance at Ambassadors meetings, his work attending & volunteering at events and on-boarding & welcoming new Chamber members. We are excited to recognize Bob as the Chamber Ambassador of the Quarter.
Bob Williams is the former Commodore of Bird Key Yacht Club and now serves as an ambassador to the Sarasota Chamber on behalf of the Club. Originally from the Cincinnati area, Bob, his wife Leslie and his children were snowbirds for the last thirty years before moving to Sarasota as full-time residents four years ago.
After graduating college, Bob worked for his 108 year old family business, Irwin Tools, in Ohio until the late 1990’s. After selling the company, Bob joined an investment group to build a supermarket and retail center in the Turks and Caicos Islands. For most of the 2000’s, Bob turned his attention to investing in the natural resource market as an independent investor where his travels often took him North to Canada and to several countries in South America.
After successfully helping Bird Key Yacht Club rebuild their membership after several difficult years, Bob is now looking for new
opportunities in the Sarasota area.
