Adrian spent many years as a recruitment leader in recruitment agency land but knew it was flawed. Determined to do things differently, he became a co-partner in TQSolutions because it was the ideal business to re-imagine and deliver Hiring and People Services the way it could be, and should be.
Academically, Adrian had a keen interest in all things science, and undertook undergraduate studies in Biology and ICT (Computing). This was followed up with post-graduate studies in Aquaculture, specialising in Abalone, and then additional studies in ICT.
At the height of the dot-com boom, Adrian fell into recruitment and the rest is history. In addition to TQSolutions, Adrian has an interest in SaaS workforce management solutions.
Place of birth
Favourite imaginary client?
One that understands the importance of their people and strives to get their hiring right.
We know what you do by day, what do you do by night?
Weekdays I co-manage TQSolutions and hang out with awesome colleagues and clients.
Evenings and mid-week I dedicate to family and get nerdy and involved in a family software business.
Weekends are for fun and hanging out with my wife and kids. In the winter I love heading to the hills for snow fun. I am actively involved in Hotham Snowboarders Inc, a snowboard pathway development club for groms, many with dreams of becoming professional, and one day representing Australia at an elite level.
If you could have lunch with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Alan Turing – He was a great man who changed the course of history by developing one of the very first computing machines that helped to crack secret WW2 Enigma codes.
What might we be surprised to know about you?
I don’t eat chicken!
