News icon Scholars Speak Podcast: Adam Fortier-Brown

In the latest episode of the Scholars Speak podcast, host Michele Martin, the 1999 Mitchell Scholar from Scarborough High School, catches up with Adam Fortier-Brown, the 2015 Mitchell Scholar from Gardiner Area High School. Listen up as Fortier-Brown, who graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in Economics and Political Science, shares insights on how his internships in the Office of U.S. Senator Susan Collins and with the Cohen Group led to serving as Government Relations Manager for the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (where he helped pass the Great American Outdoors Act of 2020, the largest U.S. conservation project since the Eisenhower era) and now as a Senior Consultant for Deloitte (where his clients include the U.S. Department of the Navy at the Secretary level). Throughout his career, Fortier-Brown says he has been guided by answering a single question he asks himself: “How can my work improve the place I love, which is Maine?”
