  1. Will is a true champion for Lucidworks values-based culture. The company has grown from 100 to over 250 employees over the past several months, and Will has not only outlined values like honoring people, and staying curious, he’s modeled them himself. He’s gracefully taken on the challenge of growing a global company, and through his actions and responses to issues and conflict, managed to create a healthy, inclusive, and respectful work environment. Employee reviews on Glassdoor rank Lucidworks with one of the highest CEO approval ratings (98%) compared to the average 69%. The company overall also has a high rating of 4.5 compared to the average 3.4 on a 5 point scale. This is more proof from the inside that Will’s clear mission and values-based vision are felt throughout the organization. Will is also a great role model as a black executive who grew up in the Bay Area. As many people feel excluded from the wealth of jobs and opportunity that sprung up around Silicon Valley in the last two decades, Will serves as a great model for what’s possible. Lucidworks is a proud partner to organizations like 10,000 Degrees that provide financial, emotional, and education resources to Bay Area kids to get them through high school, into college, and settled into a career.
