Brandon Adams - President and CEO
Brandon G. Adams, founder, president & CEO of GCOM Partners, Inc., is a multi-disciplined communications expert. Adams' career in marketing and advertising spans over 25 years. Prior to starting his own agency 18 years ago, Adams worked for large and small agencies in the Midwest before his last employee tenure as an advertising and PR executive with Boehm Hathaway and Associates, a regional public relations agency in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Working very closely with the president and CEO of Boehm Hathaway, Adams expanded his award-winning creative acumen into full service integrated strategic planning, implementation and business development as a hybrid agency generalist.
With ambitions to create a more dynamic, flexible multi-cultural environment and client base, Adams formed his own firm, recruiting such brand name companies as Oster, Miller Brewing Company and Johnson Controls. These companies formed the core foundation of a client base that has expanded over the years to include local, national and multi-national corporations.
