Kyle Williams graduated from Ball State University’s Teachers College in 2000. He is currently the Midwest Regional Sales Manager at Sebia Inc. Here are Three Things To Know About Kyle:

1. Kyle joined the Ball State University Foundation Board of Directors in 2020: Immediately struck by the beauty of the campus during a visit in high school, Kyle did a little more research about Ball State and was impressed by its student-to-professor ratio. He sent in his application, got accepted, and started soon thereafter. After having such a positive experience at Ball State — with plenty of help along the way — Kyle said his sense of pride in his alma mater has never waned, and he decided to join the Ball State University Foundation Board of Directors last year to make an impact on future Cardinals. “I believe that it is vital for our alumni to give back to the University to support current and future students,” Kyle said. “While on campus I experienced a time of great need. I was able to find the resources that I needed to continue my educational journey. The only thing that was asked of me was that I would remember the gesture and do the same for the students that were to come after me. I took this commitment serious and I plan to keep my promise.”

2. Kyle’s student roles as resident assistant and president of his fraternity set him up for future success: Kyle, who would go on to earn his Master of Business Administration from Bethel College in 2013, currently serves as the Midwest Regional Sales Manager at Sebia Inc., a diagnostic laboratory equipment manufacturer based out of Paris, France. Currently in a leadership role at Sebia, where he trains and develops fellow employees, Kyle is also responsible for maintaining aggressive growth within the myeloma and diabetes markets. He said his experiences at Ball State, which included a role as a resident assistant and serving as the president of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., gave him the foundation required to find success in sales. “Ball State gave me the tools needed to be successful throughout my sales career,” Kyle said. “Being in a fraternity taught me how to work as a team and value the input of others. Personally, I developed lifelong friendships with several individuals that have diverse backgrounds.”

3. Kyle’s advice for future students to help them have a fulfilling career and meaningful lives? “My future Cardinals, remember that every action has a reaction,” Kyle said. “Make your decisions wisely. If you find yourself at crossroads and you do not know which way to go, reach out to someone for help. It is OK not to have all of the answers. Set goals that stretch you, but yet are still attainable. Preparation, focus, and fearlessness will lead you to limitless success.”
