John Adams – Shareholder

John is our quarterback of the Salt Lake office.

If he isn’t passing a tax return to a senior accountant he is probably handing off a 401(k) assignment to the employee benefit department. Like all good team leaders, his influence at Cook Martin Poulson is felt in a variety of ways. As a licensed attorney with a Masters of Accounting degree, his expanded vision of the business field makes him a great advocate for our clients.

If John tells you he will get something done, it gets done. His ability to keep commitments and build genuine relationships with his clients and co-workers makes him a great member of our team.

Outside the office (which is rare) you’ll probably find John on one of the local golf courses or at a family gathering spending time with his wife and three kids.
