As the co-founder of Suite Spot, Adam Drescher has spent his career living out a personal and professional dream doing what he loves with people he loves working with. It’s taken some time but it’s now clear to him that this is a family tradition. Drescher’s father, Arthur, a nature photographer, finds gratification in every aspect of his work, but feels a certain joy seeing the reactions of those who view it. As a boy, Adam absorbed this passion for viewing life through a lens and for creating work that other people would feel as connected to as he does.
Adam attended Temple University not far from his childhood home in the Philadelphia suburbs, studying music and film. It was at Temple that he met his professional partner Eli Heitin and together they formed Suite Spot in 2004. Prior to founding Suite Spot, Adam spent time studying under Owe Svensson at Mix AB in Stockholm, as well as developing live-streaming technology and producing content for the fashion and advertising worlds. It was through these early jobs that Drescher realized how he wanted to run Suite Spot — as a collaborative effort, free of hierarchy; people working with one another, not for one another. Adam has helped build the company on a foundation of empathy and humanity in addition to hard work. While this work ethic has reaped benefits such as a Cannes Lion, an Effie Award, and numerous others, the long-term partnerships and innovations that he and his team have developed are the real proof that when you put your heart into your work, respect and recognition follow.
Based in San Francisco, Adam is the visionary at Suite Spot, spending much of his time with his clients and ensuring them that their goals are realized. (And sometimes inventing new goals for them.) Adam has also been recognized by his peers with a membership to the Producer’s Guild of America. Outside of Suite Spot, Adjunct Professor Drescher also teaches the next generation of broadcast students at Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. He also takes great pride as a volunteer at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland where he works to deliver individualized, patient-focused content for children and families in the hospital’s care.
