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 more recently, developing 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. As an avid mountain biker and wakeboarder, Adrian’s focus and depth of knowledge is in these areas. Of course various “research trips” to cable wakeboard parks and mountain bike parks around the world are a necessary part of creating balance and staying current in these markets.
