Bringing 10-plus years of general contracting experience, Adam joined Procore Technologies in 2017 as a Solutions/Sales Engineer to work with prospective clients during the software evaluation process.  He works collaboratively with company owners, construction managers, general contractors, architects, engineers, and specialty contractors to discover their needs and identify solutions to meet those needs. He’s a product expert for the sales organization, conducting in-depth demonstrations of Procore’s software and works closely with account managers to ensure customer needs are being met. Prior to joining Procore, Adam spent time with JE Dunn Construction, Saunders Construction and most recently, DPR Construction.  Starting down the Superintendent path, Adam was an early adopter of leveraging technology in his role.  Whether it was using a robotic total station for layout, testing tablets and document apps, or piloting punchlist programs, Adam was on the leading edge of bringing technology to the field in the mid to late 2000’s. Adam’s years in the general contracting industry took around the country, finally landing in California with his wife Kelly, where she is a surgical resident.  They live in Oxnard, CA with their two dogs Jack and Lucy, enjoying the beach, sun and outdoor lifestyle.
