At the helm of our ship is chief firestarter and company founder, Adam Burk. Adam is an interdisciplinarian and collaborator at heart. He’s a man who connects – people, places, ideas, and organizations. He founded Adam Burk + Co in 2015 after three years of leading the Treehouse Institute, a Maine non-profit that fosters more resilient and prosperous communities through building social capital.

Adam still operates Treehouse, and the transition to Adam Burk + Co is a natural progression, as building engaged communities – from our employees to our customers -- is the key to everyone’s success. And thank goodness for that. Adam Burk + Co was thus born as a mechanism for designing experiences that put people at the center and instigate empathy between a business and the community in which it operates.
