  • Damond L. Williams

    Founder / Executive Officer


    Mr. Williams has over 25 years of experience in the field of basketball, and is also a dual degree holder in Social Sciences. He attended 3 universities between 1998-2003; New Mexico State University, University of Memphis, and McNeese State University. With both experience as an athlete, and as an executive, Mr. Williams proved that leadership, innovation, and empathy for the sport of basketball is the best way you can give back. In 2013, he noticed an unmet demand regarding athletes seeking complete career opportunities in the field of basketball. This further sparked Mr. Williams to structure an entity aimed to support affinity driven initiatives like that of CBA's mission. Mr. Williams has positioned CBA to be the cornerstone of "Basketball Economy" which involves all areas of the business of basketball. Lastly, Mr. Williams has increased human capital, and international participation rates by more than 200% over a 6 year period. Mr. Williams has gained national recognition from Crains, Forbes, the BBB, and other prominent media sources throughout the world.
