Professional Bio

Laura Adams
Senior Executive Assistant

Laura Adams joins Axiom as a Senior Executive Assistant with nearly three decades of experience. For 26 of those years, Laura acted as the key support for the CEO, CFO and COO of Southern Graphic Systems (SGSCO), a global brand impact group specializing in design, graphic services and process optimization. Her work there involved managing several C-suite calendars and preparing all board presentations for company meetings. She also oversaw the travel, expense and corporate card programs. 

Planning and organizing for high-level executives of a worldwide company required top-notch

communication and collaborations skills. Laura enjoys being in that critical support role, saying, “I’m best at working in the background and helping the executive shine. When I see people who I support be successful, I feel successful.”

Laura prides herself on being able to seamlessly manage multiple assignments simultaneously and looks forward to doing that at Axiom. She’s also excited to learn more about the financial industry and the business of investing. 

In addition to her work, Laura has a keen interest in animal welfare. She served on the board of the Arrow Fund, a nonprofit that rescues and rehabilitates animals who have suffered abuse and neglect. When not working, Laura enjoys spending time with her five nieces and nephews, and recently became a great aunt for the first time.

Why You Joined the Axiom Team

“After many years working super long hours, I was looking for more of a work/life balance. I believe they value that at Axiom.”

Areas Where You Look Forward to Contributing?

“I am excited about helping Vaughan and others make the best strategic use of their time. I also look forward to utilizing my previous experience to help with the company’s travel needs, policies and procedures. I believe a truly valuable assistant eventually becomes an integrated part of the entire team. My goal is to be that for the folks at Axiom.”

Biggest Work Success

“I’m proud of my ability to work with executives of all levels, often accommodating the needs of several people simultaneously. Keeping many ‘cooks in the kitchen’ happy and in the right place at the right time is an important skill set.”

Best Business Advice You Ever Got

“One thing has stuck with me since my college days when I worked at UPS. My boss would always say, ‘If you can’t find time to do it right the first time, when are you going to find time to do it over?’”

What You’d Be Doing if Not in This Job

“I think I’d be a dance instructor. I went to the performing arts school in Louisville and always enjoyed dancing.”
