Seminole Boosters, Inc. and the Florida State University Athletics Department have received a $1 million leadership commitment from Brian and Cortney Williams, of Atlanta, in support of the Seminole football program and the Renaissance Campaign. The Renaissance Campaign is a focused effort to receive gifts in support of a championship future for the football program.

Additionally, the Williams have made a significant commitment in support of student-athlete scholarships by establishing the Brian and Cortney Williams Family Endowment. They have also been long-time contributors to the Seminole Boosters’ annual fund and founding seat owners in the Dunlap Champions Club at Doak Campbell Stadium.

The Williams are proud alumni of the College of Business. Brian previously served on the Seminole Boosters Board of Directors for six years.

Brian, 44, is the founder and CEO of Crown Asset Management, LLC, a professional receivables management and purchasing firm specializing in distressed consumer receivables. Crown Asset Management, LLC is a member of the 2020 Seminole 100, recognizing the fastest growing businesses owned by Florida State alumni. 

“Florida State football has been part of my life for as long as I can remember,” said Brian. “During college and immediately after, for Cortney and me, attending FSU games with friends became a big part of our lives together. Over the years it has become a family affair, which now includes our children, Rush and Reagan. We have made lifelong friends and created countless lasting memories thanks to our affiliation with FSU football and Seminole Boosters. Cortney and I are pleased to be in a position financially to be a part of the Renaissance Campaign. We look forward to supporting Coach Norvell and his staff as they bring FSU Football back to championship form, where it belongs.”

FSU Athletics Director David Coburn is grateful for the Williams family.  

”Brian and Cortney continue to demonstrate their commitment to the success of Florida State Athletics,” Coburn said. “They have led by example – from opening their home to host FSU events, to endowing an athletic scholarship, to their most recent gift to the Renaissance Campaign. I am very grateful that Brian and Cortney are a part of the Seminole family. This is a very exciting time for the football program and Florida State Athletics.”
