Amy Adams Strunk, USA
Owner of the Tennessee Titans
Strunk had no football experience when she took control of her late father Bud Adams’ team – Tennessee Titans – in 2015. But it didn’t take long for her to make her mark, hiring and firing head coaches, selecting staff and leading one of the NFL’s monolithic 32 franchises. Now one of the most influential people in the Tennessee sports world, Strunk has transformed the franchise thanks to her vision, commitment and leadership in creating a public image for supporters and players. She can be seen strolling the sidelines, shaking supporters’ hands and even features in the franchise’s interview processes for new staff, as well as providing honest opinions about the general direction of the team. A vast contrast to the closed environment that existed in previous years. Although the Titans have only made the playoffs once since 2008 – losing in 2017’s divisional round to the New England Patriots – she promises to do everything in her power to restore the club back to Super Bowl contention. A process that will take time but is firmly achievable under her guidance.
– Adams has varied the pricing structure for match tickets ahead of the 2019 NFL season in a bid to encourage more Titans fans to attend home games.
– She donated $1 million to the Houston flood relief effort in 2017.
– She is on the NFL’s Hall of Fame committee and was also named on the Board of Trustees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.

“I’m warm, I like to show people how I feel, that’s who I am. But I also have no problem doing whatever it takes to win. That is definitely my priority.” – Amy Adams Shrunk (Source: ESPN)
