Adam has more than 25 years of experience leading teams to deliver business transformation initiatives at large life sciences companies. With a longstanding commitment to improving the employee experience at all levels of an organization, Adam is valued for his shoulder-to-shoulder collaboration with clients; change management abilities; and focus on sustainable, measurable outcomes.
The first time Adam saw the potential for an employee experience transformation was at age 17. He had found a summer job working alongside union laborers at a shower door manufacturing company. Adam quickly observed that his co-workers were unhappy: underutilized and disengaged. He believed there had to be a better way – to instill in hourly employees a sense of pride and purpose in their work, and for the company to realize the positive impact of a fully engaged and energized workforce.
This experience inspired Adam to pursue a master’s in industrial organizational psychology and dedicate his career to helping companies deliver more – and better – through operational excellence, performance management, and technology enablement. Today, Adam leads the life sciences effort at Navigate, focusing his efforts on large-scale efforts to elevate the customer and employee experience to drive better financial and operational performance.
He has worked with a wide array of companies in life sciences and beyond, including AmerisourceBergen, Genentech, CSL Behring, Johnson & Johnson, PECO, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and Christiana Care. Prior to joining Navigate, Adam led Grant Thornton’s human capital management practice, and served as director in the business advisory group.
Adam is a graduate of Shippensburg University and West Chester University. He and his wife have three children and are the proud owners of a small dog with an extremely long name.
