Adrian began his recruitment career in the late 90’s and joined Astbury Marsden in 2002. His potential was soon recognised and he was made a Partner at the firm, building and managing recruitment teams across both professional sectors and international territories. The growth of the divisions under Adrian's leadership was a key factor in the company's Virgin Fast Track Listings. Adrian was a member of Management Buyout Team that acquired Astbury Marsden and sold his shareholding in the business back to the remaining management in 2008. In 2009 Adrian started Twenty with Paul Marsden. Beginning with a Lap Top and a phone he is currently the Global Managing Director.
