  2. – Direct involvement with projects from the top-down; informative, knowledgeable, and passionate. Adam is always in the office and is hands on in many departments. He knows more about the company than, in my opinion, many CEOs know about their own. He is smart, gives dynamic speeches, and puts in the work. He respects his employees
