Jonathan Adams

Jonathan Adams got enthusiastic about construction while growing up in Jonesboro and working summers during his high school and college years.

After joining Associated Builders & Contractors of Arkansas in 2012, his work garnered national recognition with the Mullan Award for Overall Membership Excellence for growth in 2016.

Behind this achievement was his co-founding of Construction Young Professionals groups in northwest and central Arkansas during 2015-16 to promote professional development and community involvement for up-and-comers in commercial construction.

Adams graduated in 2003 from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro with a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in management and sales.

After college, he worked in sales at the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal, general manager of the Tulsa Business Journal and executive vice president for Herald Haven Media in Jonesboro.

Adams serves on the advisory board for the Division of Engineering & Construction Management at John Brown University in Siloam Springs and the executive board of the Quapaw Chapter of the Boy Scouts of America. He is participating in Leadership Arkansas Class XI.
