TWHBEA is excited to announce Major (Ret.) Rory R. Williams as new Deputy Executive Director. Mr. Williams joined the staff April 27, 2015.  He and Walter Chism during a short transition period will direct the daily operations of the Association.  Mr. Chism’s experience will help smooth out and shorten the transition period for Rory who at the end of this time will become the full-time Executive Director for TWHBEA.

Rory is a retired Major from the United States Army with an impressive listing of leadership and service commendations most recently in Cheyenne, Wyoming from which he moved in March.  His Masters Degree is in [Public Sector] Leadership from Marshall University.  He and his wife,  Michelle, reside in Columbia, Tennessee.  Rory will be a valuable addition to the TWHBEA staff and to the Tennessee Walking Horse industry.
