Behind the Scenes with Chris Williams June 28 2013


Chris Williams, A Simple Tree Custom Picture Framing's production manager, joined the family-owned business about three years ago. His interest in woodworking led to taking classes at Trident Technical College. Although the woodworking program got cancelled, Chris was hooked and devoted himself to learning about the framing business, using power tools and understanding the day-to-day business operations of the busy frame shop. 

"I saw it as an opportunity to get a good head for business," say Chris. He also prefers working for his family's business rather than someone else. "I see a true value in working with my family and growing our family business. Plus I have flexible hours." This flexible schedule allows him to concentrate on his other passion - music - and his band, the Steel Rollers. You can see them perform at local music venues including the Pour House on James Island and Snapper Jack's on Folly Beach.
