What I do

Adrian is the Chief Executive of Kirklees Council in West Yorkshire.


Adrian passionately believes that the foundation for thriving communities is public service and a democratic leadership.

He also believes that advanced engineering and manufacturing are critical to sustaining the local economy. He wants to further strengthen links with local schools, the NHS, voluntary sector and local people, with the overall aim being to improve local quality of life.

He is married with two children, a naturalised northerner and keen on all sport – so yes – both Town and Giants!
