Working at Williams

Williams honors longest-tenured employee

Two years ago, Williams celebrated the 50th work anniversary of our longest-tenured employee, Jack Crowder, a senior operations technician in North Carolina.

On May 1, Crowder reaches the 52-year mark in his career at Williams and is looking forward to many more days working out of Station 160 in Reidsville.

He’s been there most of his career but also spent 14 years working on right-of-way projects up and down Williams’ Transco Pipeline.

“I grew up on a farm and saw a chance to better myself with a job at Williams and it’s been a great career,” Jack said.

Brian McCoy, who was operations manager of Station 160, said Jack is a tremendous asset.

“Jack is just a hard worker,” he said. “There’s no two bits about it. He will outwork any one around him.”

“I have pretty much put my hands on everything here, more than once,” Jack said. “The challenge is what I like about it. Some days it’s hard but if you work at it, you can do it.”
