Evalynn A. Williams

President & CEO, Dikita Enterprises, Inc.

Evalynn, better known as “Eve”, has more than 37 years of experience in management and accounting with the firm. After serving 27 years as the company’s CFO she became the President and CEO in 2010.

 She has since led the company to new heights. Following and guided by her father, the company has continued to grow and thrive in new markets and obtain larger notable projects. Eve has been instrumental in the company’s growth nationally, securing contracts with major public authorities from California to New York, and locally including Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), TxDOT, DISD, Texas A&M, City of Dallas, DFW Airport and many others.

Beginning in 1983, the firm became the trailblazer for securing prime minority contracts with mostof Dallas’ major public agencies. In her quest for success to secure prime contracts with majority-minority participation, she has continued to spread wealth. Unprecedently, in 2016, Dikita completed a prime role as a 49% JV partner designing and managing the construction of DART’s last 3 miles of light rail from Ledbetter to UNT, while orchestrating an unparalleled 60.4% minority participation among 15 minority consultants on fees of $14 million dollars. She has also led the firm in 2 ongoing consecutive 6-year plus $4B Dallas Independent School District (DISD) Bond Programs as a prime program manager, today totaling $48M in revenue with an average of 95% MBE participation. Dikita was the first African American firm to ever serve as a Program Manager for the District’s bond programs in 2016.

Due to her exceptional track record and accomplishments amassed over the years, she has gained the trust of clients, communities, and her professional staff. Eve is very sensitive to growing her employees by training them well enough so they can leave but treating them well so they will not want to. Everyone who knows and works with her will declare that she will push you to be the best you can be. Her motto: “In order to become great you must practice being great. Give it 130%.” She will continue to push the organization into utilizing new technology, venturing into new markets, and offering new services to current and new clients. In October 2020, she became the first African American female to chair the Business Members Board of Governors at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), a nonprofit international association of more than 1,500 public and private sector member organizations. 

When she is not working, she enjoys jet-setting with her father and 2 daughters.
