Greg Adams

Greg Adams

CEO

When it comes to political campaigns, Greg has seen it all. That’s the kind of experience more than two decades in the political arena will bring. Every day he looks at client objectives strategically and can customize outreach solutions that will impact campaign outcomes in the best way possible. Greg will tell you that he simply manages a team of smart people who in turn help other people to use outreach efficiently to reach their goals, but that’s him being modest. That’s because Greg is an expert on campaign strategy from the grassroots level to the point of getting a candidate elected. His expertise stems from a career rich with experience as a grassroots consultant, finance director and technology manager for political action committees, several candidates for the U.S. House and Senate as well as work with several non-profit organizations. He also ran the web development division at Democracy Data and Communications. Successfully integrating technology with positive political outreach has led to his role here at ACCESS Marketing Services. A graduate of the University of Virginia with an MBA from George Mason University with a concentration in Management Information Systems, Greg has made Springfield, VA his home for nearly four decades.
