James Williams recognized among Washington, DC award winners for executive excellence

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 11, 2014– Liquidity Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:LQDT), a global solutions provider in the reverse supply chain with leading online marketplaces for surplus assets, is pleased to announce the recognition of James Williams, Vice-President and General Counsel, as CXO of the Year in SmartCEO’s Executive Management Awards.

“We congratulate James on this acknowledgement for his contributions to Liquidity Services’ growth over the past eight years,” said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services. “During this time, we have evolved from a closely-held private company to a publicly-traded, global leader in the reverse supply chain market, which has required our legal and compliance function under James’ leadership to become more strategic and responsive to the needs of our clients and business team. James is committed to supporting our clients’ growth goals and developing his team by aligning long-term career goals within his department with our overall strategic objectives.

“Whether it is managing a time-sensitive commercial agreement, M&A project, or expansion opportunity; serving our clients with excellence is the key to our success and James embraces our company core value of customer focus,” continued Mr. Angrick.

The annual Executive Management Awards program recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of Washington’s management all-stars — the CFOs, CIOs/CTOs, COOs, and other C-suite executives at the highest levels of the region’s business community. Awardees are considered by SmartCEO to uphold the highest ethics, lead collaboratively and creatively, and enhance and support the organization’s mission.

“All too often, senior leaders in an organization become unsung heroes,” said Jaime Nespor, regional president of SmartCEO media. “This is why SmartCEO designed the Executive Management Awards. The 2014 Executive Management Award winners are not only leading their companies and co-workers to achieve great things but they are also making huge contributions to their communities. We are honored to recognize each of these individuals and celebrate their accomplishments.”
