Adrian joined in June 2017 as the Finance and Operations Director. Originally from North Devon, Adrian has lived and worked in Cornwall for around 38 years. He served for 14 years in the Royal Navy, joining in 1975 at HMS Ganges. He served in various conflicts (Falklands, Middle East, Fishery Protection and Icelandic wars) and also travelled to Europe, America and the Middle East, finishing his service with a Front Line Sea King Helicopter Squadron at RNAS Culdrose.
He worked for Carrick District Council for 16 years as a Business Manager and a further 12 years at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust as a Deputy Divisional Finance Manager.
