Melarka Williams : A Man Who Stops At Nothing

Melarka Williams, CEO Ingenuity Technologies

He continued: "I remember the maternal love my siblings and I received from our mother. She was a gentle soul, always pleasant, and didn't let anything trouble her. While my mother worked a steady nine-to-five shift, my father had alternating shifts at the factory. My father knew only one job all his life. He began working at NestlÈ at age 18 as a labourer in the processing department on the production line; and he worked there until he retired. This taught me the importance of stability." Williams expressed gratitude to Nestle as they provided him with scholarships for his entire academic life, which subsidised school expenses. Through the company's summer job programmes, Williams also worked at the plant alongside his father. "These summer internships were some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Seeing how the machines worked sparked a joy in me, and, no doubt, this lead to my love for mechanical engineering."
