Adams launched her career as a member of the senior production team for the Broadway casts of The Lion King and Mamma Mia! and subsequently moved with them to Toronto under the Mirvish Productions banner.

A later move to television saw her build and oversee teams on some of Canada’s leading awards shows, including the Canadian Country Music Awards, the Scotiabank Giller Prize and The Genie Awards.

She has also overseen the development of digital strategies for her properties.

“She has already begun to redefine the way brand activations take place on screen, and I look forward to working with Claire as we shape the future of BGM,” said Bristow.
