PRODUCTION ACCOUNTING / BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
A native of Tennessee and graduate of Pepperdine University's business management program, Adam has worked in the entertainment industry for over fifteen years. He began his career as an intern on the Roseanne Barr talk show in 1999. In 2000, Adam moved on to a family of production companies that specialized in Award Shows and other televised live events. Here, he rose to serve as Business Manager and Chief Operating Officer for the in-house operations as well as some other leading producers in the field.
Building upon this experience, Adam used his passion for getting things done and love of building relationships to create Hutson Company. Launched in 2015, Hutson Company manages the business side of productions, enabling clients to concentrate on creating and growing instead of getting weighed down with the day-to-day concerns of running a business. The operation is built on the foundation of customer service and focuses on the well-being of the individuals that make up the entertainment industry, not just number-crunching and paperwork.
A cornerstone of Hutson Company's business philosophy is Adam's belief in giving back. A portion of all profits from Hutson Company are donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and San Diego Zoo Global.
