Adam Dias, 30


Where do you see yourself professionally in 20 years? Continuing to strengthen and build my company and bringing in the next generation to sustain American manufacturing here in Rhode Island.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self? To not take anything too personally. I found that it’s quite difficult sometimes when it’s a family business that you take pride in its history and you’re connected to it in more than just a professional way.

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby? Sailing on the bay. My dad has been sailing for 58 years or so and I’ve been sailing since I was a kid with him. It’s an escape, both because it’s something to do for fun and something to do with my dad.
