Kim Boyer, President/ Partner
Kimberly Boyer President/Partner A product of Missouri wine country, Kim joined Adamson more than 15 years ago and was named president in 2007.

However, one of her greatest achievements at Adamson has been as architect of BrandSmart™, our proprietary brand development process.

As the agency’s Idea Director, he now champions branding ideas that utilize all forms of media to connect with consumers in an engaging way.
