President and CEO, best-selling author, and an acclaimed guest speaker, Adam Coffey, is an inspiring and authentic leader who creates high-performance cultures and drives transformative growth.

During Coffey’s tenure, CoolSys acquired 21 companies, achieved a 278% revenue increase, a 360% increase to EBITDA and grew to 3000 employees. In April 2019, he led the company through the private equity sale of CoolSys from the Audax Group (Boston) to Ares Management (NYSE:ARES).

Coffey also serves as an advisor / board member for private equity-funded, California Medical Evaluators in Santa Monica. He is an active mentor to MBA candidates and is a regular, favorite guest speaker at UCLA. Coffey, who considers himself a blue-collar CEO, has a diverse background. He has led several commercial and industrial service businesses, is a licensed general contractor, a pilot, a former GE executive, an alumnus of the UCLA Anderson Executive Program, and a veteran of the US Army.

Coffey’s first book, The Private Equity Playbook, was released in February 2019 and became an instant #1 Amazon Best Seller and private equity cult classic. His second book - The Exit Strategy Playbook was released in September of 2021 and also became an instant #1 Amazon Best Seller. He was named one of the “Most Influential Leaders” by Orange County Business Journal in 2018, 2019 and in 2020, and 2021 was named to their prestigious "Top 50".
