Adam graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Sport Management (the school is chaired by David B. Falk – celebrated sports agent to Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, etc.). The school’s connectivity to the sports industry helped open the door for Adam’s first job as a sports marketing agent with PMG Sports, headquartered in Cary, North Carolina. At the time, “PMG” represented primarily Olympic athletes and legends like Bruce Jenner and Nastia Liukin. Many of PMG’s clients were active on the speakers’ circuit, giving Adam his first experience booking speakers. Adam’s primary role, however, was securing endorsement deals with various brands leading up to the 2012 London Olympics. In 2013, Adam moved out to Los Angeles to work for a growing sports agency with more Olympians and NFL athletes. Here, Adam led business development, speaking engagements, and client recruiting. Since joining SME in the fall of 2015, Adam has booked speakers and entertainers such as such as Richard Branson, Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Lenny Kravitz, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Peyton Manning, Cyndi Lauper, Magic Johnson, Jay Leno, James Corden, Sheryl Crow, and Darius Rucker. During his career, Adam has done business with prestigious brands and companies like BP, HP, Anheuser-Busch, Aston Martin, HUGO BOSS, Deloitte, and PwC. Outside of work, Adam enjoys playing basketball, and rooting on his Syracuse Orange, Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots.
