Your dedicated team

Jennifer Adams

Jennifer was a math whiz as a child and continued to love numbers as she grew up. She worked a few bookkeeping jobs before she and Neil decided to create their own company. When Jennifer and Neil created Adams Construction Co. in 1981, Jennifer was a stay at home mom and a work at home mom. She multi tasked throughout her children’s formative years at their home, building the company from the ground up by Neil’s side. She has worked relentlessly throughout the last 40 years, putting her heart and soul into the company. To this day, she still enjoys the numbers and has been instrumental in helping keep the company afloat during the recession and all the tumultuousness that the construction industry has faced throughout the years.

Michael Adams

Neil and Jennifer’s first child, Michael, grew up working the odd jobs for his parents’ company. After working several summers for other companies specializing in roofing, Michael spent a few years working for a framing contractor, specializing in various trades. Additionally, he built three spec homes during his free time (after work and on his weekends), honing his skills in all areas of construction. In 2007, Michael returned to Neil Adams Construction, earning a spot as project manager. After Neil's passing, Michael took the reins of the company as President and is following in his father's footsteps creating beautiful homes throughout the Reno/Tahoe area.

Mark Salley, the Honorary Adams

Mark started working for Neil Adams Construction in 1985, when the company had been in business for less than five years, and he’s worked for the company ever since. Through his dedication to Neil Adams Construction and close work with Neil himself, Mark has earned his place as an honorary member of the Adams family. Today, Mark synchronizes projects and creates beautiful homes as a project manager.

Lindsey Adams

Neil and Jennifer’s youngest child, Lindsey, has been helping clean up construction sites almost as long as she can remember. She has since learned the ropes of the office from Jennifer, working her way up from office assistant to administrative manager to Secretary. She has been an integral part in merging the ways of the old filing systems with the new digital age in order for the company to continue improving and expanding. She is very excited to be able to work alongside her brother, whom she has admired from a very young age.
