At Movable Type Management, Adam will serve as President of Movable Type Media, managing a very exclusive list of authors while developing and producing the adaptations of MTM’s clients’ work.
After receiving a degree in Finance and Management from N.Y.U.’s Stern School of Business and spending a decade as a sales and marketing guru for technology startups, Adam Chromy decided to blend his love of narrative with his modern entrepreneurial spirit. The result was Artists and Artisans, where for ten years he represented authors with a professional rigor seldom seen in the book business.
After hundreds of published books and numerous bestsellers, Adam reorganized Artists and Artisans as a management company to better serve clients by offering them the higher visibility afforded by film and television adaptations of their work.

Author – Please Fire Me: Posts from the Revolting Workplace (professional)
Please Fire Me is the best handbook to an all-out employee revolution. The fuel of this revolution comes from the reader-submitted posts of the popular blog PleaseFireMe.com, the favorite outlet for people trapped in bad jobs to anonymously vent. Packed with laugh-out-loud segments which are just as funny flipping through as read straight through, the book generates an original and clever response to every complaint imaginable.
