From growing up on a farm in Oklahoma, to living in Wisconsin, Texas, and now Lake Forest, Illinois since 2014, Don Adams has seen “what works” in building a thriving and successful community. Don has a background in finance, sales, and management. Most recently, he held a senior leadership position at NCC Media for 14 years, and is now the head of Midwest regional sales for Warner Media, digital entertainment and integrated content partnership division. He knows how to identify and develop talent, and has served on boards for church, local, and professional organizations. He is excited to use his experience to identify the best candidates for Lake Forest mayor, aldermen, and the school board. Don has been married for 31 years to his wife Laura and has four daughters, including two in Lake Forest public schools. Lake Forest is now home, and he wants to see it thrive and flourish as a city of leadership and success on the North Shore.
