Hobbies & Interests
We were intrigued when Adam told us recently that his great grandfather was one A.E. Pickard who by all accounts was a Glasgow based entrepreneur, cinema magnate, eccentric, and more, described as a “right character”. Now we know where Adam gets it from! When we interviewed Adam, we asked him what he was passionate about and he replied “I love systems” – that sealed it for us and he has been a key member of the team ever since. Something of a polymath, Adam’s abilities extend well beyond financial analytics, covering boxing (he once lost all feeling in his upper lip for 5 months after a boxing match), rugby and classic literature. He has also turned his hand to blacksmithing, welding, wood turning and milking cows on occasion! Adam is the go-to man in Centrus when it comes to anything Apple or gizmo/gadget related. Even Adam can’t like everything though and he confesses to an intense dislike of quiche and early mornings.
