Mr. Miles speaking with the press at the launch of Save-A-Thon for Africa in Osogbo, Osun State, Nigeria in March 2014.

 

Mr. Adam Miles is an experienced Wall Street advisor that has been serving venture capitalists, corporations, and high net worth individuals for years. He has worked for some of the world’s largest and finest firms in finance. Prior to his career as a financial professional Mr. Miles worked for global powerhouse, Honda Motor Co. in various capacities including new model cost control and government relations.

While staying extremely busy as an advisor Mr. Miles founded the humanitarian start-up, Bridges To America, Inc. Its mission is two-fold:
1) legally reunite financially needy African families to the USA, and;
2) empower young American women by arranging visits to Africa to provide motivation, resources, and ideas through soccer to enable African youth to solve their own problems and inspire them to take ownership of their futures. This work has primarily focused on Africa’s largest democracy, Nigeria.

The company is now actively engaged in running an ambitious effort to build a soccer and business academy in Nigeria, which includes ongoing soccer clinics called Save-A-Thon For Africa. In 2016, Mr. Miles introduced Refugee Soccer into Utah to bring the refugee and mainstream communities together using the same service model that his team has proven effective in Nigeria.

Personal
Mr. Miles has lived numerous years outside the USA on several expatriate assignments, and is fluent in spoken and written Japanese. His home base is Park City, Utah but travels extensively.

He has four great children, plus two sons-in-law who he appreciates. He loves running, skiing, and tennis and loves spending time with family and often includes them in his business ventures. He is a published author and loves to write and speak publicly.

Mr. Miles loves to say “In Africa, it takes so little to do so much.” It is this view that provides him and his team the most extraordinary and fulfilling return on investment of time, capital, and heart.
