Julius Williams – MANAGING DIRECTOR
Julius Alexander Williams. Hey, that name is way too formal, and complicated for the man we’re talking about here. ‘Jules’ will do…always. He’s not the ordinary man.
At the helm of WE FM, Jules has a most unorthodox management style. He oversees, seemingly, from the sidelines; and trusts his staff to get the job done without interference.
Jules believes “you get more out of people if they’re comfortable”. He invests in young full-time employees, allowing them to come into their own, molding their own identities, free from the influences of older models in the industry. “Don’t sound like anybody else. WEFM was not created to be an imitation.” That’s Jules talking.
The man is practical and assertive, perhaps dogmatic at times. What the workers at WEFM like most about their boss is that he is approachable. He truly listens. Mind you, Jules won’t hesitate to let you know you’re talking crap. But then again he’s wont mind if you reciprocate. Did we mention he was extraordinary?
His staff loves him. He’s funny, jovial and easy-going, yet beneath that relaxed demeanor is a shrewd businessman. Jules hates being the underdog, hence he’s ambitious and relentless in his pursuits. He’s nothing short of an electronic wizard, has always had a knack for the ‘technical’. By age ten, he had built his first radio. Jules Williams has utilized his solid electronic background to ace the rest of the field in radio.
WE FM offers the widest coverage, and does so on a single frequency, 99.9. WE FM is the child company of Williams Electronics, of which Jules is also Managing Director. Making music has also been a relaxant for Jules, and playing the keyboard to past-time after work led to the establishment of arguably the best band ever in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
From 1986 the band Touch dominated the music scene for about a decade, with Jules as Manager and Sound Engineer. Remember his quest for excellence? Jules will boast that Touch has never lost a Road March Competition. Face it; the man’s a winner!
