C-Suite Wednesday — Congressman Roger Williams of Texas is the New House Small Business Committee Chairman

Roger Williams

“As a lifelong small business owner, I am both humbled and honored to serve as Chairman of the House Committee on Small Business. From out-of-control inflation to broken supply chains, I have firsthand experience dealing with the current problems facing America’s job creators. As the Republican majority works on solutions to these pressing issues, it is essential we have a small business owner at the helm of this committee to be the voice for Main Street America.

In a previous interview with Fox Business News he told Maria Bartiromo that chairing the Small Business Committee is the perfect role for him after 51 years as a car dealer employing hundreds of people in Texas.

Williams said this “is a great time to be in America … the future’s ahead of us. I’m excited about being in the majority … we’re gonna give hope to small business owners, we’re gonna give hope to those who want to start a business … we’re gonna make things happen and America is gonna become number one in the world again ….”

He was an All-Southwest Conference baseball player at Texas Christian University and was named to TCU’s All-Decade Team for the 1960s.

After graduating from college, Williams was drafted by the Atlanta Braves and played in their farm system for many years before launching a career as a small business owner and serving as TCU’s  head baseball coach. His love of sports followed Williams to the U.S. Capitol, where he serves as chair of the bipartisan Congressional Baseball Caucus and the College Football Caucus. He is also coach and manager of the Republican Congressional Baseball Team.
