As Director of Field Systems & Services, Val Williams oversees all the systems and resources the field staff requires in managing their local offices including the vital Customer Relationship Management, or CRM, system. Additionally, her team provides support for team members’ individual activities, such as developing and generating needed reports. For hardware and software troubleshooting, Val manages Search’s relationship with its managed IT services provider. A graduate of Georgia State University with a degree in business, she spent her career in the technology arena, overseeing systems for plant management and control for the textile industry and later as an independent systems analyst consultant. In 2007, she and her husband, Perry, joined a couples Bible study headed by Search Greenville Area Director David Martin and his wife, Elaine. When the opportunity arose to put her professional skills to work in service of Search’s mission, she jumped at it. “It’s not work for me,” Val said. “It’s my ministry where I can put my skillset to use.” Val and Perry split their time between Greenville and Charleston. They have a grown son, Hunter, who calls Greenville home.
