From 1991 to 2010 grew a skills training business from 6 staff (£250k turnover) to 850 staff (£46m turnover). Inspired and envisioned the team to deliver what seemed impossible. In 2006 Adrian sold the majority stake in the business for an 8 figure sum. From 2007 to 2009 he turned around a second loss making (employment) business into a £4m EBITDA business.
In 2007 Adrian diversified the business into recruitment to complement the skills training business. He acquired 2 businesses, stripped out cost, integrated them into the core business and grew turnover and EBITDA. Adrian raised group EBITDA organically from £4m to £8m to £13m in consecutive years to 2009. Re‐financed the business in 2009 ‐ paying a dividend to shareholders of £15m.
Now ESG, Employment and Skills Group with a £46m turnover. Successfully lobbied senior civil servants and MP’s on behalf of the employment and skills sector. 2011 Awarded an OBE for “services to skills and training.
