Alec Williams

Ballet Idaho Board of Directors

About:

Alec Williams is the Manager of Trident Holdings LLC, a private equity and real estate investment company in Boise.  His private sector background before Trident spans Lazard’s Financial Advisory Group, Blackstone’s Private Equity Group, and Table Management LP.  As a Naval Officer, Alec deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, where he received a Bronze Star.  Alec received a B.A. from Princeton, M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, and J.D. from Yale Law School.  But he lacks any artistic skill whatsoever and tries to make up for it by helping out Ballet Idaho.

Why did you join the Ballet Idaho family?

My mom played in the Boise Philharmonic for two decades.  She taught me the meaning and beauty of performing art in all forms.  Her efforts sharing that sense of meaning and beauty inspired me to follow her example by supporting Idaho’s performing artists in the small ways I can.

If we were to dance to any song, which one would you choose?
