You could say surveying runs in Adam Elliott's blood. He spent a lot of time as a youngster with his father, Monroe Elliott, going afield with his survey crew. Monroe was a highly respected surveyor by trade , trained in the army in the 1950's and went on to open a small survey business, Elliott Surveying in rural Montgomery County.
At the time, Adam was too young to swing a bush hook or even a machete, so he kept busy playing in the streams and woods while the crew did the work. Eventually, he was fetching the back sight and chopping line for his father's survey crews until the business sold and Monroe took a position at the local Highway Department. At that point, Clint went on to work for other survey firms and Adam, 5 years Clint's junior, finished school and was hired on as the wash boy at a local Auto Body Shop. At the shop, he worked his way up the ladder to a certified body repair technician, then to collision estimator, and finally to a management position.
The time, quality, and budget management skills acquired from being both a commission earning technician and salaried manager played an important part in the role Adam would take with Clint Elliott Survey, not to mention the work ethic his father instilled in he and Clint throughout the years. While Adam worked for the repair shop during the week, he was there to lend a hand in the backwoods of Montgomery and Houston counties (TN) on the weekends when his father or brother picked up the occasional side job.
Now, Adam serves as the Director of Operations for Clint Elliott Survey. He eagerly joined the team in July of 2017 and his duties include general bidding for residential surveys, scheduling surveys, consultation, and oversight for quality control.
He lives in Montgomery County with his 3 children.
