Adam Hirsch is the managing partner and creative director at Goza Tequila, which he co-founded. The University of Georgia graduate and Nashville native previously worked as a production assistant for Turner Sports and an associate producer for Fox Sports.
Hirsch has lived in Atlanta the past decade and was a 2014 member of the AJT 40 Under 40. Since then, he has remained involved in the Jewish community, including being a member of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s Young Leadership Council and a former chair of the Marcus JCC’s Young Angels committee. He also is active with Jewish Family & Career Services, ORT Atlanta and Jewish National Fund’s Southeast Region. He won an Emmy for best sports director in short form and is a member of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival’s selection committee.
Hirsch, a filmmaker, has directed two short films that screened at the AJFF, one of which won an audience award for best short film. Since 2015, Hirsch and Goza Tequila partner Jacob Gluck have spearheaded Gozapalooza, a Christmas Eve party for young Jews in Atlanta. Hirsch married fellow Jewish Atlantan Mandy Rich in June, and the two are expecting a baby girl.
“We are currently living in the best time to be a young Jewish professional in Atlanta,” he said. “There are opportunities to volunteer, get involved and create a community, regardless of where you live. As Jews in Atlanta continue to spread out, it is important to work hard to create a Jewish identity in all of the diverse neighborhoods.”
