Zak Williams, an expert in marketing and consulting, has joined the CFSY board of directors. Zak most recently led the marketing efforts of technology media company N3TWORK and aerospace firm Moon Express.  He also oversaw major marketing and production for games company Electronic Arts. As a consultant, he advises technology companies on marketing, organizational, and management initiatives.

Zak founded and teaches a financial literacy course at San Quentin State Prison. Through this work, Zak learned first-hand about issues in the criminal justice system and specifically the juvenile justice system. This motivated Zak to use his experience to help end life without parole for children.

Zak earned a BA in linguistics and literature from New York University and an MBA from Columbia Business School. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Alex, and his two dogs, Jose and Olive.

We are excited to have Zak on board and look forward to working closely with him as we work together to end the practice of sentencing children to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
