Director and Head of Public Affairs
Adam has more than 10 years’ experience helping clients to develop their message, effectively tell their story to political decision makers, secure major policy wins and build strong relationships with politicians and officials.
Adam has worked with a wide range of bodies, helping them to gain real traction, and as a result has built an excellent set of contacts across major government departments including HM Treasury, the Department for Health and Social Care, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Department for International Trade.
Adam’s current clients include the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), where he has worked on the Professional Qualifications Bill and promoted the HCPC’s regulatory reform agenda with parliamentarians, including throughout the passage of the Health and Care Bill.
He also works with the London Market Group, developing and implementing its award winning Brexit and trade strategies for the commercial insurance sector. This has included developing the industry’s Brexit proposals, described by the Evening Standard’s Anthony Hilton as ‘one of the most important documents to be published’ and securing Government-supported taskforce and cross party support in parliament. This work won a number of industry awards including Advisor of the Year.
In addition, Adam has piloted significant financial services legislation through parliament including the Insurance-linked Securities legislation, and worked with HM Treasury and the Department for International Trade on international promotional projects for financial services.
In addition, Adam has worked on Marie Curie’s public affairs campaigns on palliative care; the Alliance for Intellectual Property’s IP reform campaigns; the Solicitors Regulation Authority, where he provides senior counsel on regulatory issues; US engineering firm Burns & McDonnell’s UK public affairs strategy, promoting its work with central and regional government; and Boeing Defence UK, where he helped secure a number of contracts with the Ministry of Defence.
Adam previously served as a London Borough councillor and was closely involved in Zac Goldsmith’s London Mayoral bid as a candidate for the London Assembly.
