The leader of the wolfpack.
There was nothing in Adam's background—his mom a schoolteacher and dad a small business owner—to predict he would fall for luxury hotels.
That changed at age 16 when a stay with his grandparents at the Waldorf Astoria (then synonymous with “the best” or a “true grand hotel,” like today’s Ritz in Paris or The Plaza in New York) inspired him to launch AZDS Interactive Group, a digital marketing agency specifically targeting luxury travel brands. People rarely use the word 'possibility' when they speak of luxury hotels, but Adam thinks the best ones do just that: suggest a you that you'd never suspected was there.
More than a decade later, Adam has grown AZDS from a mere 'possibility' into a multi-million-dollar practice that represents some of the world's most renowned luxury brands—including Leading Hotels of the World, Montage Hotels & Resorts, the Edward Thomas Collection, and XOJET. If you meet him for breakfast, be sure to ask him what he was doing at age 11.
Beyond speaking at international marketing conferences or publishing in the likes of Forbes and the Denver Business Journal, Adam has several reasons to get out of bed every morning:
Ian's role at AZDS is quite complicated as it involves many facets of the business. Among a number of things, he heads up client services/operations, email creation and distribution, website maintenance and a handful of other leadership tasks. Ian designs and establishes the most effective ways to create a successful digital campaign for the client. When we entrust our clients in his hands, he not only designs a home run play, but he knocks the ball out of the park. This is what keeps our existing clients smiling and new clients lining up. 'The Rock' both figuratively and literally around AZDS, Ian keeps projects moving forward.
Ian is a sports fanatic in every sense of the phrase; be it playing sports or watching them, he always gives it 110%. His sense of competition truly fuels his passion for life, both in the professional and personal realms.

Outside the office, Viktor is an avid Arsenal fan and tennis player. He has even taken the court with compatriot Mats Wilander, who is one of the best Swedish players to ever play the game. Viktor won the match.
