Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce

LLOYD WILLIAMS is truly a transformational leader who is setting in motion a success pendulum for a new Harlem renaissance, economically vibrant beyond COVID-19 and this tense season of systemic racism and economic injustice. 

As the CEO of The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce and the chair and co-founder of HARLEM WEEK, the largest summer attraction in the northeast, Williams is not only a prominent figure in the community but also a leader and role model.  Under his leadership, The GHCC serves as an anchor for regional and community stability and success and works diligently to focus on Harlem’s second renaissance. 

Mr. Williams sits on the boards of several organizations, including New York City & Company, and The City College of New York. 

Mr. Williams was solidly mentored by the late Honorable Percy Sutton and is the godson of the late Malcolm X.

He takes his inspiration from what’s happening in communities of color – African Americans, Caribbean Americans, Latinos, Africans, etc. – with a firm conviction to connect the dots to understand how we all come together through the strength of unity.  He believes Harlem is the most special place in this country – a truly international community – and he’s honored to be a Harlemite.
