Adams has served on the boards of several New England companies and continues to lead a consulting services firm that he founded over 20 years ago. He is a published author whose book, “Business Finance: A Clear View,” is currently in its third edition. He earned an MBA from Bryant University.

“After years of hearing about the benefits and positive deeds that Lifeworks has brought to our communities, it is now my profound and genuine pleasure to be able to give back by service on the board,” said Adams. “I look forward excitedly to working with these wonderful colleagues and the fine folks who benefit from Lifeworks’ services.”
