Adam is GM’s Manager for International Government Relations within the Global Public Policy team, a position he has held since October 2019. In this role he is responsible for working with the diplomatic community, the US Executive Branch, and non-governmental organizations in Washington, DC to advance GM’s policy and regulatory priorities in a way that benefits the Corporation and the areas in which it operates.

Before joining GM, Adam was Program Manager for Europe, Israel, Canada, and Energy within Lockheed Martin International. In this role he worked with the broader Lockheed Martin team to coordinate and shape the Corporation’s Europe, UK, Canada, and Israel pursuits and represented Lockheed Martin to the diplomatic community in Washington.

Prior to Lockheed Martin, Adam worked at Arconic Defense where he coordinated US and European business develop activities and engaged the executive and legislative branches as part of the government affairs team. Before joining Arconic, Adam spent eight years at the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), first as an analyst focused on Middle East navies and later as country manager in the command’s International Programs office, where he managed Naval Intelligence’s relationships with four Asia-Pacific nations. 

From 2012-2014, Adam was detailed to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) for Policy where he served as Country Director for Syria. During his time there, Adam led a Defense Department-wide working group to supply meals and medical supplies to the Syrian opposition. This was the first assistance the US Government provided to the Syrian opposition forces and resulted in the delivery of nearly 100,000 meals and several tons of medical supplies. For his work on this project he was awarded the Office of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Civilian Service.
