Chief Executive Officer, Cadillac Products Inc.
Michael Willaims II is the 2nd generation CEO of Cadillac Products Inc. He joined the company in 1977, and became president in 1989. Prior to joining the family business, he worked for Phillip Morris.
Since its founding in 1942 by Michael P. "MP" Williams and in support of our troops and our government's wartime efforts, Cadillac Products has been developing and supplying innovative protective packaging and other fabricated plastic parts to a wide range of industries. After MP's death in 1980, his son Robert J. "Bud" Williams steered the family business toward film extrusion, printing and laminating. As the company headed into new markets, its experience with product innovation afforded opportunities for growth. During the 1990s and up to today, Bud has chaired the company's evolution while his sons took active rolls in managing what is now Cadillac Products Automotive Company and Cadillac Products Packaging Company.
While the company prepares to move from third- to fourth-generation family management, it continues to build upon its heritage of developing new material combinations, proprietary manufacturing processes and products with far-ranging markets from, automotive and transportation to health and human services.
