At Merrill Lynch, we believe that wealth isn't just about the performance of your portfolio—it is about how you live your life and the personally meaningful goals you want to achieve. This could be saving for retirement, planning for a college education, saving for a second home, caring for a family member or starting a business.

Adam’s second company, WASH Multifamily Laundry, a commercial laundry service company, started as a family owned business that during Coffey’s tenure was subsequently sold in 2008 to Code Hennessy & Simmons (Chicago) and was then sold again in 2015 to EQT Partners (Stockholm). Adam is currently building his third company, CoolSys, a commercial refrigeration and HVAC service company that during his tenure was first owned by the Audax Group (Boston) and is now owned by Ares Management (NYSE:ARES).

    Known for building strong employee centered cultures, and for executing a buy and build strategy, Coffey is highly sought after by private equity and is considered an expert in running commercial and industrial service businesses. Adam is a former GE executive, an alumnus of the UCLA Anderson Executive Program, a pilot, and is a Veteran of the US Army. Adam's first book - The Private Equity Playbook, was released in February of 2019 and became an instant Amazon Best Seller.
