Admired for his strong character and high moral standards, Austen’s reputation is second to none. These traits align perfectly with our company’s culture and we couldn’t be prouder to have him on board. With an amazing roster of artists, innovative executive team, and a family-oriented atmosphere, the future is even more bright at Big Loud.”
“I have been lucky enough to work closely with Big Loud’s founding partners for many years and can’t wait to join the incredible teams they have put together,” said Adams. “I have always admired their talent, drive, and the cutting-edge approach they have taken in building such amazing companies. I couldn’t be more excited to become a member of the Big Loud family.”
