Adam founded CO-OP in 2012 after recognizing a gap in the traditional agency model in terms of both efficiency and democratic access to top creative. CO-OP was profitable within the first 30 days and has since scored a succession of big wins and new clients with a lean, no-nonsense agency model that prizes best-in-class creative output with no frills on the business side.
