Adams has five great brands, three of which have been in the same format for 30 years, a rarity these days! The Adams vision commitment to community service and the live and local aspect of their products sets the company apart and this is what I have missed the most. I could not be more excited to be back on the street with a sale staff!

He brings a wealth of talent and market knowledge to our team and 18 years of on the street experience in sales and management from inside the market.
