Managing consultant of The PR Store, Bo’ness, Central Scotland
Adrian grew up in Bo’ness – attending the town’s Deanburn Primary School and Bo’ness Academy. He went on to study journalism at Napier College, now University, in Edinburgh, graduating in 1987. He joined The Falkirk Herald the same year, rising to become its chief reporter at the age of 22. He left the paper – after 10 happy years – in 1997.
Adrian moved into public relations, firstly working for the Government’s then housing agency, Scottish Homes, for two years, then for a private consultancy and latterly for himself. He’s run his own PR business – The PR Store – since 1999. It offers a range of PR and marketing services.
Adrian was elected to Falkirk Council in 2007, after a spell as a member of Bo’ness Community Council. He led on culture and tourism within Falkirk Council, stepping down at the 2017 May elections. He’s also served as the vice-chairman of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations in Scotland; was a director of Falkirk Community Trust; and is currently a supporter of another charity, The Friends of Kinneil – which promotes Kinneil Estate on the western edge of Bo’ness. Away from work he is a keen photographer, walker and technology fan. He also loves the area’s restored cinema, the Bo’ness Hippodrome.
