Amy Adams Strunk
Controlling Owner/Co-Chairman/Board of Directors

Biography

Amy Adams Strunk assumed the role of controlling owner of the team in March 2015, and also serves as the co-chairman of the franchise’s Board of Directors.

Since assuming that role, Strunk has made many changes to stabilize and improve the franchise. She hired Jon Robinson as General Manager while also naming Mike Mularkey as head coach and Steve Underwood to the position of President and CEO. Additionally, she has committed significant resources to upgrade Nissan Stadium and the team’s practice facility, Saint Thomas Sports Park. Strunk also continues to grow the administrative staff for the franchise with significant additions across the different departments. All those changes translated to success on the field as the Titans showed a six-win improvement from 2015 to 2016, which matched the greatest improvement in franchise history.

One of the daughters of Titans franchise founder K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr., Strunk was raised on football and is proud of her father’s role in founding the American Football League as well as the decades of leadership he provided not only to the Titans franchise, but also to the

National Football League. Her goal is to build upon that legacy and establish the Titans as one of the league’s elite franchises.

An independent businesswoman for more than 30 years, Strunk is the owner and president of both Kenada Farms and the Little River Oil and Gas Company. She has been significantly involved in the family’s farming and ranching businesses, including serving as the vice president of Bud Adams Ranches, Inc. These ventures provided her valuable knowledge about customer service as well as the opportunity to manage a diverse range of employees and business operations, and these experiences have shaped her management style.

“I believe in hiring good people and letting them do their jobs,” said Strunk. “Everything should revolve around what’s best for the Titans and not around the owner. While I talk frequently with the leaders of the Titans as I do with all of our family’s companies, the people in our football operations need the control and latitude necessary to create an exciting and competitive team.

“Our business staff needs the same freedom in order for our organization to reach its full potential and to continue to create a first-class fan experience at Nissan Stadium. Decisions will always be made based on what is the best for the team to reach our goals of becoming one of the elite franchises of the NFL and enriching the communities of Nashville and middle Tennessee.

“Nashville is one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing cities in the nation with a very promising future,” said Strunk. “We are proud to be a part of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, and we want the Titans to be a leader in providing opportunities for people and businesses in the city and the region to achieve their dreams.”

Engaged in the process of improving all aspects to the franchise, Strunk has the best interest of the football team and the fans on her mind as she makes her decisions. “I was so happy for our players, coaches and fans last year, to see the excitement back in Nissan Stadium as we continue to progress as a team. We are continuing to find ways to improve the fan experience and are so appreciative of their support through our two decades here in Tennessee.”

In 2016, Strunk was appointed to the NFL’s Hall of Fame Committee. Her appointment continues a family legacy, as her father was a long-time member of the committee. Additionally, in 2017, Strunk was named to the Board of Trustees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame..

A graduate of the University of Texas with a degree in history, Strunk is an avid horse enthusiast whose other interests include farming, ranching, tennis and a variety of other outdoor activities. She also served as a volunteer coach of both the boys and girls varsity tennis teams at her daughter’s high school.

Never one to turn down a challenge, during the 2017 offseason, Strunk accepted an invitation to skydive with members of the Army’s Golden Knights to kickoff draft week.

Strunk and her husband, Bill, reside near a company ranching operation in Waller, Texas and have an additional residence in Nashville. She has three children — Tracy, Tommy, and Blanche, who are all avid sports fans and outdoor enthusiasts.
