Adams focus on leadership, the people agenda and his absolute integrity shone through in all my interactions with Adam. Adam is an absolute pleasure to work with - he has a super sense of humour and a strong compass of what is "right". He applies great knowledge and experience to his role and will be an asset to any organisation or interaction.
Rob Houghton

Adam was a dynamic and assertive leader who developed a compelling vision of a future infrastructure platform and organization, sold the vision to both the technology leadership team and our key business leaders, and then executed vigorously to successfully achieve the vision.
