Previously, he led the Management Consulting Practice for PwC and before joining the firm he was president, CEO, and a member of the board of directors of Diamond Management & Technology Consultants, a management and technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 clients. Diamond was acquired by PwC in November 2010.
A consultant for more than 25 years, Adam has served a global client base across numerous industries including health industries, financial services and insurance, telecommunications, and industrial and consumer products. His focus has been on helping clients create and sustain shareholder value by generating new sources of profitable growth, building new businesses, as well as leveraging information and information technology to operate more effectively. Adam's work spans strategy through execution.
Adam joined Diamond as a founding partner in January 1994 and joined the company's board of directors in August 1999. From July 1998 to April 2000, he served as the company's Chief Operating Officer, and from May 2000 through March 2006 held various leadership positions in North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. He served as Managing Director of all international operations from July 2003 to June 2004 when he became president of the company, and in April of 2006 he was named Chief Executive Officer. During his tenure as CEO, he helped guide the firm as it grew both organically and in-organically through several successful acquisitions. He later orchestrated the divestiture of its European and Middle Eastern assets that positioned the company to invest in its core business and achieve profitable, consistent and sustainable growth. Ultimately this led to a very successful transaction and follow -on integration with PwC.
