An experienced tourism operator, Adrian is a former Shotover Jet Group (now Ngai Tahu Tourism) CEO. His company, Adventure Group, owns Canyon Explorers and Snow Rentals in Queenstown. He is also chairman of Canyon Swing and a director of Fox Glacier Gliding and Mt Cook Glacier Guiding.
Adrian has been a resident of the Wakatipu Basin twice, first moving to Queenstown in 2000 and after some time away, returning with his family in 2013. Adrian and his wife have two primary aged children with the oldest set to attend WHS from 2021. A key driver in the decision to return to Queenstown was having confidence that his children would receive an excellent high school education. He believes the Foundation’s work, to ensure all Queenstown kids have access to a broad and high quality education, is critical to the future prosperity of Queenstown.
