IDD Team Member Spotlight: Adam Cox
When it comes to attracting top talent to InStore Design Display, we're on a roll right now. Team IDD is excited to welcome its newest member—Adam Cox. He joins our team as a senior project manager. With more than 20 years of project management experience, Adam's passion is helping clients promote and grow their products and businesses.
Are you a KC Native? I am. I grew up in Johnson County and went to the University of Kansas for my undergrad. My only time living outside the area was a 10-month stint in Cleveland, and I was glad to get back to KC.
Favorite food? I love Mexican food. It doesn't really matter what restaurant I go to as long as their chips and salsa are good.
Favorite KC BBQ? They are all good, but I probably visit Kansas City Joe's more than others, and my favorite order is the Rocket pig with fries and onion rings.
Tell us a little about your family. I've been married to my college sweetheart Lindy for 14 years, and we have two daughters, ages 11 and 8. Plus we have three female cats. I'm outnumbered 6 to 1 in my household.
What are some of your hobbies? Sports are what I spend the most time on outside of work. My daughters both play soccer, and I'm an avid sideline supporter for both of them. College basketball is probably my favorite sport to watch along with professional football. I'm a huge fan of Jayhawk basketball and football, Chiefs, and Royals. I also like to build and fix things around the house. My most recent project was finishing off part of my basement. Last year provided ample time to get the honey-do list complete.
Are there any causes you are passionate about? Anything related to animals. We have rescued several cats over the years. They seem to adopt us more than we adopt them. We support local shelters like Kitty City. I also regularly donate to the Community Blood Center. I would urge anyone who is able to donate as frequently as they can.
Why did you join the team at InStore Design Display? I was fortunate to work with Trevor Lewis and Shana Ryan in a previous project management role, so friendship was a big part of what drew me to IDD. I also was excited about the project manager role. IDD's project management process is similar to what I have done before, but now I will have more in-depth relationships with clients. One of my biggest strengths is problem-solving and that is a key element to my new role. I was drawn to the family-friendly nature of IDD as well. I want to be at my daughter's soccer practices and games, and at IDD balancing family and work is not only possible, it's a priority.
The uniquely talented and hardworking members of Team IDD are why InStore Design Display is what it is. We are excited to have Adam on the team and look forward to all the great things he will contribute to IDD and our clients. Adam can be found on LinkedIn, follow him there, and see what's in-store for retail display design + build.
