Adam Weiner is a resident of Purchase with his wife, Dana, and his two children, Sasha and Zach, attend Harrison schools. He grew up outside of Seattle, WA having always been inclined to go and do, rather than waiting for things to happen. Independent and a hard worker from an early age, he’s spent time commercial salmon fishing in Alaska, DJ’ing for his college radio station in Ohio and working in local news in Boston. While in Boston he also met his wife and attended Boston University where he earned his master’s degree in Television Management.
He and wife eventually settled in Purchase, which they describe as the perfect place to live and they quickly became active members of the community. Adam started coaching his daughter’s softball team with the Harrison Little League when she was in kindergarten and still coaches her teams to this day. He also volunteers as a soccer coach for his son, was a member of the Purchase PTA’s dad club and is volunteering with the Kol-Ami synagogue Hebrew school. Ms. Weiner was a member of the Purchase Community House board of directors. Adam loves to run and can often be found at the LMK track or the Purchase College loop. He also happens to be the 2017 Westchester Wingfest wing eating champion.
Professionally, Adam was a VP with the children’s television network Nickelodeon in New York City for over 12 years, where he led Marketing and Creative Operations. In this role he was responsible for overseeing marketing global campaigns while developing a reputation for being a strong leader, problem solver and for building long-lasting relationships. In the spring of 2020, he was able to use these skills to help the State of New York’s COVID-19 contact tracing initiative as a Deputy Regional Manager for the Mid-Hudson Region. In this role he works closely with state, county and local governments to develop and oversee the workflows, team supervisors and hundreds of contact tracers that are necessary to reach and help millions of New Yorkers.
With his background and experience, he looks forward to serving the Town of Harrison and would bring his trademark style of efficient management, transparent communication and honesty and ethics that are beyond reproach, to all town residents.
