Adam Berger

Managing Director

Assistant: Abbi Andrle

Adam Berger joined Insight in 2018 as a Managing Director. He is Chairman of Campaign Monitor, a leader in Email marketing services focused on the SMB sector, Chairman of E2Open, the only place in the cloud to run an enterprise’s supply chain, and Chairman of Diligent, the leader in board of director’s software and governance content. Adam also serves on the board of Virgin Pulse, the leader in employee centric wellness software. 

Until January 2017, Adam was CEO of Digital Room Incorporated, an online printing company, where he increased revenue to over $170 million and sold DRI at the end of 2017 for over 4 times what its owners paid. 

Adam has an extensive track record in building software and marketing driven companies and filling in closely behind founders. He was Chairman and CEO of Spark Networks Inc., a publicly traded leader in online dating with sites such as JDate.com and ChristianMingle.com, and was previously CEO of WeddingChannel.com, Inc., a venture-backed start-up providing multi-media bridal services which was sold to The XO group (fka The Knot) in 2006.  

Adam began his career as an engineer with The Procter and Gamble Company, later moving into brand management on the company’s Tide and Downy brands. Following P&G, he was a case leader at The Boston Consulting Group and then President and COO of The Franklin Mint, where he led a turnaround of the $600 Million Philadelphia-based global direct marketer, manufacturer and retailer of collectibles. Mr. Berger also served as interim management on behalf of Texas Pacific Group during its early investment in J. Crew.

Adam earned his Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, and later an MBA from The Harvard Business School. Adam has been a member of YPO since 1998, initially in Philadelphia and subsequently in Los Angeles, and was a founding member of YPO Wilshire Gold in 2016. 

Adam and his wife Susan reside in Los Angeles, CA. They have two college age children: son Adrian studying Chemical Engineering at Carnegie-Mellon University, and daughter Mollie studying business at Emory University. Adam takes pride in being a horrible golfer and needing at least 30 strokes from his son to make it interesting. While spending nearly zero time on the golf course, he and his wife are avid theater, music and ballet fans and supporters often braving 90 minutes of traffic to travel 8 miles to enjoy LA’s arts offering.
