Since founding OneSource Virtual in 2008,Williams has increased revenue each year, as well as expanded OneSource’s service offerings outside the U.S. In addition, Williams and OneSource are responsible for introducing the cloudsourcing model, which is changing the way organizations of all sizes leverage technology and business process outsourcing services.
“It is a privilege to receive the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, and I want to express my gratitude and thanks to the remarkable OneSource Virtual team for all we have accomplished together,” said Brian Williams, co-founder and CEO for OneSource Virtual. “Three years prior to starting OneSource, I saw there was a gaping hole in the human resources marketplace. Through our partnership with Workday, we have been able to offer our customers a product that gives them the ability to choose the technology solution that meets their strategic needs, while having an outsourcing partner who provides services inside the customer’s own application.”

The unique award recognizes the significant contributions of entrepreneurs who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement. Williams is now part of a unique class of winners, which includes Ebby Halliday, Ebby Halliday Inc.; Lee Roy Mitchell, Cinemark USA, Inc.; and Stanford H. Richards, The Richards Group.
Williams leads a team of over 400 Workday Experts, specializing in the deployment and delivery of the Workday platform to medium and large organizations.
