Adam Jones-Kelley: 1973-2020
It is with great sadness that I report to you that Adam Jones-Kelley, our beloved company president and CEO, passed away this week at his home in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.
Words cannot express the grief that we all feel right now, and will feel for quite some time. Adam was not just our company leader. Like his grandfather and our founder McKinley “Mac” Conway, he was a globally respected figure in economic development and FDI attraction. He also was a great friend, a gifted and prolific writer, an engaged and enthusiastic supporter of all of us, and a visionary man.
Our hearts and prayers go out to his mother Laura, father Mike, sister Piper, brother Pedro Lopez and all who knew and loved Adam. This is an unspeakable loss for all of them and all of us.
Please rest assured that the business of Conway Inc. will go on. Solid division leadership is in place at every level. We will focus on supporting each other, the Conway family and our clients, and continue to deliver work of the exceptional quality Adam always drove us to expect.
Together, we will get through this.
Executive Vice President
A memorial service will be planned for later in the year. In the meantime, we invite those who knew Adam Jones-Kelley to send your memories, stories and thoughts to Site Selection Managing Editor Adam Bruns at [email protected].
