With almost 30 years experience in executive search, Adrian very rarely encounters a challenge that he hasn’t tackled before. Adrian can find candidates using technology tools or traditional research, but the crucial edge that his experience brings is that he can engage very quickly with senior candidates across different sectors and continents.
Adrian has worked in a range of sectors in that time, but for much of the last 15 years, he has specialised in oil & gas, power and general industry. During this time Adrian has recruited across all of the executive and commercial functions, including MD, General Manager, Partner, Commercial Director, CEO, CFO and COO, and has recruited successfully across many international locations, including Europe (Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands and Belgium) and beyond (USA, Australia, Colombia, Malaysia and UAE).
