Richard "Stick" Williams, vice president of corporate community affairs for Duke Energy and president of the Duke Energy Foundation, was appointed to the CPCCC Board of Trustees.

Duke Energy executive Richard “Stick” Williams and Charlotte attorney Scott Syfert have been appointed to the Central Piedmont Community College Board of Trustees.

Retired banking executive Judy Allison has been reappointed to the board and will serve as vice chair. Each will serve a four-year term, which began July 1.

“We are thrilled with the appointments of Stick Williams and Scott Syfert and the reappointment of Judy Allison to the college’s board of trustees,” said Tony Zeiss, CPCC president. “Stick brings the experience that only comes with years of corporate leadership and community service. Scott will be a superb counselor to the board. We look forward to Judy’s continued service and her leadership as vice chair.”

Appointed by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board, Stick Williams is vice president of corporate community affairs for Duke Energy and president of the Duke Energy Foundation. He leads the company’s philanthropy through the Duke Energy Foundation. Previously, Williams served as senior vice president of environment, health and safety, leading the company’s environmental compliance, and its health and safety programs. Williams joined Duke Power in 1979 as a financial analyst.

A native of Greensboro, N.C., Williams graduated from the UNC Chapel Hill with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. He and his wife, Teresa, live in Huntersville and have three daughters and one grandchild.

Scott Syfert, appointed to the CPCC board by Gov. Pat McCrory, is a partner with the Moore & Van Allen law firm, specializing in corporate transactions, corporate and commercial law, mergers and acquisitions, international ventures and immigration. He joined Moore & Van Allen in 1997. He earned a bachelor’s degree at UNC Chapel Hill, a master’s degree at the University of Virginia, and his law degree at UNC Chapel Hill.

Syfert and his wife, Gail, and their two children live in Charlotte.

Judy Allison, a retired First Union Corp. senior vice president and director of the First Union Foundation, first joined the CPCC board in 2010 as an appointee of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners. She is a graduate of Queens College, now Queens University of Charlotte, where she also is a trustee emeritus.

“We take great confidence in knowing the college has a strong group of trustees during this period of significant enrollment growth and facilities expansion,” Zeiss said.

Williams and Syfert are taking the place of Ralph Pitts and Jane Copper, whose terms on the CPCC board expired June 30. Ed Dalrymple, managing principal of CAPTRUST Financial Advisors, assumed the duties as the new chair of the CPCC Board of Trustees on July 1.
