EXECUTIVE TEAM & LEADERSHIP
KATE POST, Founder
Kate Post has developed high performing teams in the outsourcing industry for more than 35 years. Her pride and passion is formulated in her belief of “Employees First.” This concept is foreign to many employers in the 21st Century, but Kate has built Adamas on this model with great success. Her philosophy is that when you do the right thing and put “Employees First” their productivity, performance, and quality work are apparent in everything they do. This is how Adamas retains its employees and what makes Adamas a best in class employer outperforming their competition. In fact, in 2016 alone, 18 internal employees were promoted representing 13% of the total employees in the company! This is an astounding accomplishment and is due to Kate’s leadership style and the work of her executive team who execute and live her vision everyday!
Kate’s track record of success includes the ability to assess her clients’ needs, design programs to fit those needs and solve their everyday problems and then hire and motivate staff who exceed client expectations. Kate believes that an “In Field Management” approach is what makes the difference in how Adamas provides White Glove Service to luxury residential communities like the one at The Versailles.
