GET TO KNOW ADAM ANDERSON
Adam was born in New York to his parents, Charles and Lucille. Adam attended Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg where he played football helping the team win the state championship in 2001. While participating in the NJROTC and Naval Science programs the Academy offered, he was promoted to Company Commander and the rank of Lieutenant. It was at AFA where his love of the Pinellas County waterways and passion for sailing began.
Adam attended The Florida State University from 2001 to 2005 earning degrees in Real Estate and Finance from the College of Business. Upon graduation, Adam began a career as a Private Wealth Advisor with American Express Financial Advisors
which later became Ameriprise Financial where he obtained his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification and Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor ® designation.
Frustrated with the high cost and poor performance of many readily available investment products his clients desired, Adam founded MRA Capital Partners, LP a boutique private equity real estate investment firm focused on providing the average investor access to high quality real estate investments that have been traditionally reserved for only high net worth individuals.
In 2008, Adam married his high school sweetheart Brianne and are parents to 3 children Kayleigh, Julie, and Andrew. Shortly after their youngest child’s birth, Andrew was diagnosed with Tay Sachs Disease, an ultra-rare genetic disorder with only 16 cases annually nationwide and passed away at just 4 years old. The Anderson Family including Andrew’s big sisters remain actively involved in advancing the research and cure of all rare diseases through their work with the Cure Tay Sachs Foundation and their Family’s foundation “AJ Anderson Foundation”. These organizations helped fund the first successful gene therapy clinical trial to cure Tay Sachs Disease. With the help of Speaker Chris Sprowls, Andrew’s birthday August 10th is Tay Sachs Awareness Day in the State of Florida.
Adam and his family reside in Palm Harbor, FL where he enjoys quality time with his girls being, outdoors, fishing, boating, football, and cross fit. He and his family attend Harborside Christian Church in Safety Harbor, FL where his girls help lead the children’s worship service.
