He previously held a number of positions with the engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald including leading its renewable energy business out of their Glasgow office. Here he specialised in leading complex technical advisory work for investors and developers for onshore and offshore wind farms and biofuel power plants. Whilst at Mott MacDonald, Adam also gained considerable experience on numerous large-scale thermal power plants including coal and gas-fired projects in China, India, UK, Indonesia, Poland, Chile and the Middle East.

Adam also held the role of Technical Manager for US energy firm Mirant in the Netherlands, with responsibility for technical input to their European new build and acquisition programmes. This included responsibility for developing their onshore wind project portfolio at sites across Italy.

He began his career as a graduate trainee with the Energy unit of engineering firm Ewbank Preece, before its acquisition by Mott MacDonald in 1994. In addition to his original masters degree, Adam holds an MBA from Imperial and a Masters in Finance from the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM).
