In those areas, his coverage includes Artificial Intelligence, Big Data & Analytics, Cyber Security, Cryptocurrency & Blockchain, Mobile and related Venture Capital/Private Equity domains.
He has specialist experience working with young Technology start-up firms to support new operations in the Asia region – from regulatory issues, first leadership hires to building out highly competitive teams. This has included support with seed funding, introductions to business partners & channel partners through his extensive network of connections, both globally and across the Asia & China region.
Adrian spent 12 years in China establishing Technology teams in multiple offices while experiencing explosive growth of large volume hiring projects working with the likes of Alibaba, Tencent, and Huawei Technologies. These projects include C-suites to global searches for Chinese returnees from the USA West Coast. He enjoys the customer relationship experience and is able to understand the political environment and grasp complex strategic issues, thereby comfortable to commit and be responsible for challenging projects.

Whilst there, he had several “firsts” with deep-sea bulk wine shipments and created new trade routes at that time. He majored in sports management at college and once took a year off to win his professional golf card in Europe.
