Adam Johnson

On the money


The name Adam means “first man” and it fits Adam Johnson, a guy-guy, to a T. A self-described Connecticut country boy – by way of Greenwich and Washington in Litchfield County – he likes to hunt and cook pheasant and accounts himself a good shot. He also likes to paint but then, so did Picasso. More to the point, he’s a star in a place that is still in many ways a man’s world – the financial industry – although instead of trading on Wall Street as he did for 20 years he’s now reporting on it.
