Mr. Frank Williams, Jr., Senior Consultant, began working for Lerch Bates in 2016. Mr. Williams (Frank) is currently working in the Lerch Bates South Florida Office, providing vertical transportation consulting services for clients. Frank was born and raised in Miami, Florida and is presently based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He attended Florida State University obtaining his BS degree in Marketing Management (1985). After graduating, he joined the family elevator business and was integral in growing sales by 200% in the first five years as part of the family team. The family business, Executive Elevator Service, ultimately grew to be the largest Independent Union Elevator Contractor in Miami. This also provided him with the opportunity to learn the meaning of “customer service” and a “client first” mentality. This has served Frank well as he continues to deliver the same level of customer service, work ethics and attention to detail for his Lerch Bates clients. After the sale of the family business in 2006, Frank was Regional Modernization Manger for Otis- Florida. After having spent 30 plus years working in the Industry, Frank made the decision to join Lerch Bates due to the ability to truly assist clients with their needs and with achieving their vertical transportation goals.
