Gary Adams
Director of Operations

Gary Adams is the Director of Operations of Embrace Living Communities. In this senior executive leadership position, Gary is responsible for the oversight and management of our properties including operations, physical plant, compliance, and budget management.

After graduating from Illinois State University, he started working in auditing and accounting-related positions for retail businesses such as Walgreens and Claire’s. He worked at Claire’s for 17 years, the last six as Vice President. Gary pivoted from Claire’s to Embrace Living Communities, where he began as an Accounting Manager. After some downsizing at the organization, Gary’s original position was eliminated. However, the Vice President of Operations at the time approached Gary about making a switch to property management. She recognized something in him and convinced him to become a Lead Manager. In 2023, Gary was promoted from Lead Manager to Director of Operations.

Gary is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in Illinois, a Master Certified Occupancy Specialist and a Certified Aging Services Professional.
