Chief Executive Officer
David Adams - Chief Executive Officer
Chief Financial Officer
After 20 years’ experience in company directorships across a wide range of sectors including construction, manufacturing, engineering, energy, waste recycling and FMCG, I joined Mabey Hire in 2017. I lead our finance functions – which include Procurement and IT – as Chief Financial Officer.
Since becoming a Chartered Management Accountant over 20 years ago, I’ve enjoyed roles in operations, general management and – of course – commercial finance. I’ve worked in organisations of various sizes and structures, from SMEs to a FTSE PLC and large US-listed group. Over the years, I have specialised in business change, transformation and turnaround projects, as well as acquisition integrations.
That breadth of experience has been invaluable in my role here at Mabey Hire, where I’ve been working with my senior team in Finance, Procurement and IT to transform those functions into the role of enablers to our success. I see our team as commercial business partners who help drive the direction of the business, and it’s that collaborative way of working that is my passion and purpose at Mabey Hire.
Chief Operating Officer
I joined Mabey Hire in 2017 with a background predominantly in the construction/infrastructure hire sector. Working my way up from hire desk, through area sales roles and then into leadership has given me the best possible platform as I have seen first-hand how customer-focused operations departments work.
The customer really is at the heart of what I do as Chief Operating Officer. The goal for my team is delivering right first time solutions that inspire confidence with our customers both internally and externally.
I love to lead major change programmes with a vision for taking a company forward and it’s brilliant to be able to use all of my know-how, plus the skills, expertise and winning mentality of my team to deliver the best experience for our customers.
Sales & Marketing Director
When I joined Mabey Hire in January 2020, I had enjoyed four years’ experience in the world of temporary works and recognised this business as a strong brand in the sector.
My career beforehand spanned 20 years of progressive sales and marketing roles across the white goods industry and FMCG, where I managed key high street retail customers across various well-known household brands and products.
It’s a results based role, but getting to know customers, understanding how they work and how we can work together most effectively to deliver business growth is the key part. My experience of managing major clients across different sectors is incredibly valuable, giving me a rounded view of what a customer needs and wants, helping to shape our business to best satisfy all those things. The most rewarding part of this role is to coach and develop the team and the individuals within it, to deliver business success through the team.
I love a challenge; I was delighted to have joined Mabey Hire and it’s exciting to bring a new perspective to the team to drive the brand and business forward.
My HR career has spanned many industries, both in the UK and internationally. In more recent years, I've specialised in change and transformation, alongside latest HR practice.
I joined Mabey Hire in August 2022 to support the business in achieving its growth plans, and to bring a depth of insight and experience which will provide relevant and pragmatic people plans.
I'm a regular speaker at CIPD conference, NED to a number of entrepreneurial businesses and an executive coach.
