Together with Co-Founder Richard Castle, Adam has led Cloudbeds from a small startup to an award-winning company that powers tens of thousands of properties in more than 157 countries worldwide on the Cloudbeds Hospitality Platform.
Adam started his career as an investment banker until his love of entrepreneurship and travel pulled him from Wall Street to some of the most remote corners of the planet. He has many years of experience in consulting, has built and sold multiple companies, and hastraveled to more than 51 countries over the course of his career. Adam believes that travel and food are the keys to understanding the world and that, in particular, unique properties give travelers the best opportunity to explore and experience local culture.
Adam’s entrepreneurial spirit and community work have landed him exposure in The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, Inc. Magazine, Time magazine, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, TechCrunch, and many other prominent media outlets worldwide. He established the nonprofit La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation in 2009 and raised $50,000 in 48 hours to save his hometown’s Fourth of July tradition. The same year, Adam invented a dog collar company called Bark4Beer with a close college friend. The overnight sensation garnered over 100 million website impressions within the first month of online sales and put Adam and his co-founder in the national spotlight.
