He assists clients in a range of contexts, supporting on financial communications, corporate reputation, and positioning, often in high-stakes situations involving complex layers of risk.

“Companies today, especially multinationals, are required to engage with a wide range of complicated issues, often beyond the scope of their core business. We support our clients in just that; advising on how to interpret and navigate a rapidly changing society, taking into consideration all aspects of the local and global.”


Prior to joining Kekst CNC, Adam most recently worked on the corporate finance side, acting as a trusted advisor and manager of large teams in a number of transactions and listings. Before moving into corporate finance, Adam was a consultant in the financial communications space, supporting growth companies – particularly across the Nordics.

Adam also has a background as an entrepreneur, editor, and writer in the media industry. In the early 2010s, he co-founded a regional English-language media platform which garnered international attention for its broad-ranging coverage of the Middle East and North Africa. As part of his work in the MENA, Adam organized a series of high-profile startup conferences across the region in collaboration with the Swedish Foreign Service and several multinational companies.

He has been invited as speaker and participant in various MENA-related forums and roundtables such as at the World Economic Forum, Oslo Freedom Forum, the Almedalen Week, and Track II diplomacy talks.
 
Adam holds a Master's degree in International Relations and Arabic from University of St Andrews, UK, and a Master's degree in Communication for Development from Malmö University, Sweden. He was an exchange student at University of Damascus, Syria.
