MARICOPA — The Maricopa Economic Development Alliance recently went through a makeover in 2020, dubbed MEDA 2.0, and as part of the ongoing upgrades, the board decided to hire long-time board member Adam Saks as new executive director.
Saks has been working in Maricopa for around a decade, getting involved in local organizations for about the same amount of time. As president of Dynamic Entertainment Group, and UltraStar Multi-tainment centers, Saks has not only been witness to the massive growth going on in Maricopa, he was a part of it. Over the eight years that UltraStar operated in Maricopa, Saks helmed the all-in-one entertainment facility.
But when the pandemic happened, UltraStar was forced to depart from Ak-Chin Circle, and Saks turned his attention to his other connections to Maricopa.
