After successfully positioning ADEX for private equity acquisition in 2015, Mr. Heafy exited the company. Following his passion, Mr. Heafy raised over $500,000 as Executive Director of iMAGINE Upstate, to launch an educational program and downtown festival (21,000+ attendees) designed to inspire students about workforce opportunities through STEAM education.
