Adam Jones-Kelley is a world leading expert in cross-border investment and corporate expansion strategy. He has worked with Conway, Inc., for 17 years and served as President for four. Prior to becoming President of Conway Adam managed the award-winning international magazine Site Selection.
Since assuming the presidency Adam has overseen dramatic growth, expanding the firm’s service offerings to cover every sector of the investment attraction industry.
Adam has broad experience in economic development publishing and marketing, has been a featured speaker at events around the world and has been interviewed for various news media in the US, Europe and Asia. Adam has consulted for dozens of government economic development agencies on six continents, helping them position themselves to attract domestic and foreign corporate investment and create jobs.
Adam is also an accomplished writer, having produced original content for Site Selection magazine, OnSite Travel and The FDI Report.
In recent decades Adam has visited more than 80 countries, working with investment promotion agencies, free trade zones and industrial parks on their strategic and business development initiatives. A deadly parasite in Ghana nearly killed him last decade, as did stepping in front of a tram in Prague, adventures which he dutifully chronicled for the aforementioned OnSite Travel.
Adam grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and Auckland, New Zealand. He now resides in Peachtree Corners where he’s been enslaved by a pair of rambunctious kittens.
This idyllic life leaves Adam a little restless. He’s an avid adventure-sport enthusiast who enjoys activities such as bungee jumping and diving with sharks, and does philanthropic work for endangered and abused animals.
