Adam Alika Fell (born December 16, 1980) is an American businessman, talent manager, and producer. He is the current President of Quincy Jones Productions, Inc. (QJP), which serves as the business affiliate of record producer and music mogul Quincy Jones. The most prominent artists Fell represents are Quincy Jones, Jacob Collier, Jonah Nilsson from Dirty Loops, Richard Bona, Alfredo Rodriguez, Clark Beckham, and Justin Kauflin[1] from the award-winning documentary, Keep on Keepin’ On.[2] Fell was also one of twelve founders at Zag.com, the predecessor to TrueCar, which Inc. Magazine named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies in America.”[3]

Career[edit | edit source]

Fell attended the University of California, Berkeley, and after graduation, he became one of the twelve founders of Zag.com, which later changed its name to TrueCar. The company announced its IPO in 2014.[4]

In 2003, Fell joined Quincy Jones Productions and, since then, he has been instrumental in developing the company's brand identity. As president, Fell oversees QJP's five major divisions, which include artist management, licensing and endorsements, production, international joint ventures, and investments. Fell manages a diverse roster of touring and studio musicians, who have garnered three GRAMMY nominations, including two wins, in the last three years. In 2016, under Fell's leadership, the company's 2016 single "You Don't Own Me" by Grace featuring G-Eazy achieved RIAA Platinum certification.[5] Additionally, Fell is responsible for the administration of Jones’ licensed products, such as his signature line of electronics with Harman International[6]; his signature line of luggage and eyewear with Maybach[7]; his line of shoes with Buscemi[8]; and various other endorsement deals for the artist management division. Such endorsements include, but are not limited to, recent advertisements with Samsung, Apple, Google, Chase Bank, Beats By Dre, and more.

At QJP, Fell also oversees various projects in music, film, TV, Broadway, and live event production. In 2014, he served as an Executive Producer for the critically acclaimed documentary "Keep On Keepin' On,"[9] which won the top prize at the Tribeca Film Festival.[10] Fell has been a Co-Executive Producer for various live events for The Montreux Jazz Festival, Mercedes-Benz, The American Cancer Society, and more. In 2016, he served as a Co-Executive Producer for the ABC televised production, "Taking the Stage: African American Music and Stories That Changed America,"[11] for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC.

Furthermore, QJP has various international joint ventures including G3 in the UAE, a Global Partnership with the CJ Group, for which Fell serves as a Director, in addition to a partnership with Giti Group to develop the first Quincy Jones Music School on Kura Kura Bali.

Fell was a featured speaker at the Goldman Sachs "Music in the Air" Conference as well as the Music Industry Research Association Conference in 2017.[12]
