In the echelons of global influencers, few individuals exemplify the amalgamation of service, leadership, and innovation quite like Adam Roosevelt. His inclusion in Monaco’s 40 under 40 stands as a testament to an extraordinary journey that bridges military prowess with entrepreneurial vision.

From the battle-hardened terrains of Afghanistan, where he served two distinguished tours, to the strategic corridors of NATO in Europe, Mr. Roosevelt’s decade in the U.S. Military remains unparalleled. As a Non-Commissioned Officer, his role was not merely about strategic operations but nurturing alliances, particularly in the intricate realms of Middle Eastern policy and National Security.

Transitioning from military service, he carved a niche at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, where his insights shaped the nation’s stance on critical security matters, advising 17 intelligence agencies.

The soldier’s discipline and the statesman’s acumen found another avenue in the business world. As the CEO of the Adam Roosevelt Group of Companies, his enterprises — from international consulting to media — echo his multidimensional expertise. His global influence is evident in over 1,000 media appearances spanning from Fox News to Asharq Bloomberg.

His association with the Royal Family of Sharjah underscores the diplomatic finesse he wields, influencing counter-terror strategies across Europe and the GCC.

Venturing into the political realm, Adam secured a nomination to the Virginia House of Delegates, representing a vast constituency. His contributions to the Republican Senate Committee and the 218 program further spotlight his political vision.

Beneath these accolades lies a foundation of academic rigor. With a degree in Cybersecurity Policy from the University of Maryland and studies from Harvard Business School, Adam remains perpetually curious.

His military honors, including commendations and medals, symbolize a life dedicated to service and excellence.

As Monaco’s 40 under 40 welcomes him, it becomes clear: Mr. Roosevelt is not just shaping the present but is crafting a future where dedication meets innovation.
