Following graduation from The Ohio State University in 1998, Adam’s wide-ranging career experience included a syndicated morning radio station’s “man-on-the-street,” concert promoter, marketing agent in a media-buying firm, bartender/surfer in Australia, and eventually, an ordained rabbi with a M.Ed. from Xavier University. Guided by the motto “to help an individual become self-sufficient,” Adam’s passion centers on supporting and empowering individuals to find greater meaning, purpose, and action in themselves, each other and the world.
Using his well-rounded experience and education, he has founded and built various ventures focused on workforce development, relationship building, and recruitment. His projects include the TI Fellowship, Career Up Now, and the online system, Convue, which sorted social media into significant and insignificant posts to help relationship-based professionals be more proactive.
Hired to save a failing non-profit, he spent the last 5 years reimagining its purpose. His yearly output saved $200k in efficiencies, increased revenue to $1.25m (56%), and grew engagement to 10,000 people (455%). Thanks to his ingenuity, slingshotfund.org recognized the organization as one of North America’s most innovative Jewish non-profits.
Adam's ability to identify, cultivate, and on-board talent has been a critical component to the success of The Selling Factory. That, combined with his ability to bring in new client-companies, helps to fuel The Selling Factory's growth.
