Leadership Succession

Keith Williams retired in 2019, after 15 years of service as our president and chief executive officer. His focus on building strong relationships with our customers and stakeholders transformed UL. His determination to invest in the education and advancement of UL’s employees around the world and the communities we live in revitalized UL’s culture and capabilities. His leadership put the company on a new trajectory for growth, moving us into emerging markets such as cybersecurity, supply chain management and sustainability, and extending our global capabilities. Thank you, Keith, for inspiring us to discover new ways to fulfill our mission of working for a safer world.
