DETROIT, MI… Arion Williams of Drexel Hamilton has been selected to participate in the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Leadership Detroit program, a 10-month transformational leadership program designed to challenge emerging and existing community leaders from Southeast Michigan to bring about positive change.
“I look forward to joining this group of individuals who share my passion for making a difference in the community,” said Arion Williams, Director of Capital Markets at Drexel Hamilton. “Through the Leadership Detroit experience, I welcome the opportunity to expand my understanding of the Detroit region and gain insight into the key issues facing our city and region.”
As part of Leadership Detroit’s Class XXXVIII, Williams will join 70 executives from across Southeast Michigan, representing a cross-section of the community, including business, organized labor, government, education, media, civic groups, health services and community organizations.
