Adam left Cardinal Newman in 2006 heading for UCLan to study a BSc in Computing (Multimedia Systems). After graduating from UCLan in 2009, Adam went into work within the field of IT, working as an IT Assistant before moving into Sales Executive roles. It was here that Adam got his big break into his current role as Senior Account Manager for R&W Scott. Adam was presented with an award for “Company Representative of the Year” at the North West Hospital Caterers Association summer ball, which he shared with family and friends on social media. This was seen by senior management at R&W Scott, who then got in touch with Adam to arrange to meet for a chat. Little did Adam know that this would then lead to him being interviewed and appointed for his current role.
In his role at R&W Scott, Adam is responsible for managing the day to day running of the top accounts across the UK including: product innovation, new product development, seasonal lines offerings and latest trends implementation. His latest project is on a national scale looking at the reduction of sugar content in confectionary products across many recognised retail lines.
Looking back on his time at Newman; Adam remembers most fondly the help and support he was offered by his teacher’s. He says: “It taught me never to doubt my ability and believe in myself. Without the support from the college staff, I would have dropped out of college within the first two weeks of my course and looked for a job somewhere. My tutors were fantastic, staying behind to help me when I was struggling.”
Alongside his job, Adam is also a Treasurer for the North West Hospital Caterers Association, which involves him managing the accounts, issuing invoices, membership submissions and banking, as well as organising a Gala dinner for over 100 people with the help of another committee member.
