Outstanding Alumnus Award

The Outstanding Alumnus Award was presented in February of 2016 to Ronnie Williams, current Owner/CEO of Timber Products Inspection. He was nominated by SFWS faculty members, Glenn Glover and Jim Shepard.

Among his many contributions to Auburn University, Williams has been a long standing member of the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Advisory Council , serving as Chairman of the SFWS Leadership Team from 2009 - 2012. He has contributed as a major donor to the SFWS building project and supported the research efforts of the Forest Products Development Center, leading to the addition of a permanent staff member for the center.

Williams began his career in 1974 as a field representative for Timber Products Inspection (TP), and owned/operated many firms before becoming owner/CEO of TP in 1994. Under his guidance, Timber Products Inspection has grown from a company with a gross annual revenue of $5 million to $20 million.

Williams was instrumental in growing TP into the largest forest products testing, inspection, and certification agency in the U.S. Today it provides high quality assurance services to the following facilities: grade stamping; pressure treating; heat treating; panel manufacturing; pallet manufacturing; log/timber frame manufacturing; truss manufacturing; utility product manufacturing, engineered products manufacturing, and green building programs.
