Adrian has been Chief Executive of Badminton England since 2006 and has led the modernisation and transformation of English badminton through a long term vision focused on increasing participation, achieving medal success at World and Olympic level and being a fit-for-purpose organisation.

He also leads the GB Olympic badminton programme on behalf of the four home nations.

Adrian led the bids for England to host the European Team Championships in 2009, European Individual Championships in 2010 and the World Championships in 2011, one of the most exciting pre Olympic major event schedules in the UK and has seen this strategy drive considerable commercial success for Badminton England.

Adrian is currently leading the largest project in the history of English badminton with the redevelopment of the National Badminton Centre to a state of the art, elite and community sports facility.

Prior to joining Badminton England, Adrian worked in local authority Sport Development and Sports Coach UK before moving into National Governing Bodies, first with the Lawn Tennis Association and then onto England Squash and Racketball.

He is a member of the MK Sports Board.
