There's no better way to describe Joe Adame (Class 6) than Everybody's MVP... an All-American Good Guy... Mr. Apple Pie himself. Whether through his fantastic career as a commercial real estate broker in the Coastal Bend, a leader in civic and religious organizations, Joe has always stepped up to the plate.
Joe uses three principles to guide him: good customer service, the importance of strong leadership and the value of making the right decision. He learned them while working at his father’s pharmacy in Robstown, Texas and they’ve guided him his entire life.
Joe’s quiet and determined leadership inspired the uninspirable — GenX and millennials who had moved back to Corpus Christi. By simply listening and engaging with them, he ignited a passion in this city that spurred people to run for office, get on boards create new events, create new boards — and bring their own voice to this city.
The movement he helped create drove a campaign demanding he run for Mayor in 2008. And that campaign resulted in a home run and Joe served as Mayor of Corpus Christi from 2009 through 2012.
A true servant leader, Joe Adame is a great example of what Leadership Corpus Christi hopes to cultivate through leadership training. Seek first to understand and learn. Be open to a paradigm shift. And never back away from making the right decision.
