Adrian is the Regional Director of the North & North East for City Plumbing and PTS, but spent 11 years in the Royal Air Force (RAF) before starting a career in merchanting.
Adrian joined the RAF straight from school, aged 18, and was commissioned as an Intelligence Officer; he spent seven years within this role, completing three tours of the Middle East and Afghanistan. Adrian then spent several years teaching officer cadets at RAF College Cranwell, before progressing to a more corporate role, working in the Ministry of Defence as the Military Assistant to the Director of Strategic Partnerships.
After deciding on a change in career, Adrian decided to go down the route of gaining further education through an MBA. During his MBA, Adrian attended a presentation by Travis Perkins and decided this was the business for him. Adrian has been with the group for 4 years in several positions including Investor Relations, Sector Development Manager and most recently Regional Director in the Plumbing & Heating division.
