Adam shares a love of nature with his wife and two children. He can frequently be found running on a trail or hiking in the hills and mountains of Virginia, or taking his two miniature Dachshunds on a rabbit chasing expedition in the woods behind his house.

“Riverfront has always supported a healthy work-life balance so that each of us has the time and energy to pursue our passions; with a generous matching program, RiverFront literally “puts its money where its mouth is” in advocating for involvement in our community. An unexpected benefit for me has been the expertise of my teammates in their involvement in other areas – I lead my Church’s board, and we ended up leaning on a lot of advice from Riverfront associates as we navigated COVID-19.”
