Adrian graduated with distinction from the BC Institute of Technology (BCIT) in 2014 with diplomas in Marketing Management (Entrepreneurship specialization) and Finance (Financial Planning specialization). During his studies, Adrian was involved with a number of projects working with local entrepreneurs to develop their businesses, providing valuable research insights, and planning for financing new projects and expanding operations.
Throughout his schooling and career, Adrian has had a keen interest in developing new businesses and markets, having started his own small business while attending BCIT and once graduated, he helped set up a solar energy division within a larger company. While developing the solar division, Adrian and the small team were able to build the business to over $4 million in revenue within the first two years of operation, more than tripling the installed capacity of rooftop solar in the local market.
Adrian started with Select Contracts in 2016 part-time, entering into a full-time role in 2018, and worked his way up to COO and ran the day-to-day operations of all projects. As Adrian’s career evolves, he has gone back to his entrepreneurial roots and is currently running a passive greenhouse company on Vancouver Island so has transitioned to the role of Research and Analytics Advisor in a part-time capacity at Select Contracts. He will continue to use his considerable expertise to offer strategic guidance and research-driven insight on Select Contracts projects.
Outside of the office, Adrian is married with a son and whenever he can he is riding his mountain bike on all the amazing trails around Vancouver Island.
