Tarik Williams is a life-long resident of Arizona. He was raised to understand that nothing in life is free, but that quite the reverse is true. From a young age he spent many summer days and occasional school holidays with his father and brothers sweeping out storage units, tying reinforcing steel, and running screw guns. Through these experiences with his father, he developed a love for construction and chose to attend Arizona State University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Construction Management and a Minor in Business. He paid for his own schooling with scholarships and working as a real estate broker, during which time he was awarded Realtor Magazine’s ‘30 Under 30’. He took a two-year hiatus from his studies to serve as a missionary for his church in Spain where he learned to understand and appreciate the Spanish people and their language.
After graduation, Tarik partnered with his father at TLW Construction and is now serving his 14th year as vice president and also helps to manage a sister steel company - Caliber Metal Buildings. During this time, Tarik has shared responsibility for the design and construction of roughly 4 million square feet of self-storage and through this experience has developed a reputation as one who understands his trade and takes special interest in the operability and functionality of the finished product. Tarik has developed three storage projects on his own account resulting in valuable knowledge gained from the owner’s perspective which he is able to implement in his construction client’s projects.
In his spare time, Tarik enjoys coaching Little League Baseball, backpacking with the Boy Scouts, and camping with his wife, Jamie, and seven children (yes…seven).More Info
