Adam Ferrari is an accomplished petroleum engineer and is the founder of a private oil and gas company, Ferrari Energy. Throughout various roles in the oil and gas industry, Adam was inspired to learn more about property rights and the inner workings of petroleum exploration and extraction. After gaining expertise in the energy sector Adam obtained knowledge of the financial industry through his time at an investment banking firm. He then pivoted to bootstrapping his own business, Ferrari Energy, from the ground up as he blended his knowledge of energy and finance together.
This endeavor saw him shift his perspective to work directly with people on a personal level to understand both their story and needs. He emphasized the importance of making the effort to engage in meaningful face-to-face interactions in a world that is so digitally focused and at times seemingly removed. Adam found success in this field. His company provided over 2,000 landowners divestment and lease opportunities on their respective lands.
Giving back to the community is an important pillar for Adam Ferrari and under his leadership, his company made meaningful donations to non-profit organizations in both Chicago and Denver including; St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Freedom Service Dogs, Denver Rescue Mission, Coats for Colorado, and Next Steps of Chicago. His heart is especially close to Next Steps, which is devoted to the wellness of people suffering from paralysis because his own father lives with this condition. Dan became quadriplegic at the age of 67 and has since been receiving care through Next Steps of Chicago.
