Adam Wells

Regional Director of Community and Economic Development

Adam has over a decade of experience working with Appalachian-based nonprofits. He first worked with Appalachian Voices as a volunteer while earning his B.A. at Appalachian State University.

He happily rejoined the team in 2015 when he was hired to open our office in Norton, Virginia, and launch the New Economy program. Under Adam’s leadership, the program has made a deep impact in Southwest Virginia and across the state by building successful broad-based coalitions and connecting resources to fulfill economic and community development needs.

He lives with his family in Wise, Virginia, where his roots go back many generations.
