After a successful career in the military, Adam focused on property development in the UK.  This led to the rights of a panel building system (thermastructure/thermasteel) he brought to Republic of South Africa  after exhibiting it at Habitat II in Istanbul in the mid 1990’s.  He teamed up with the Rotch Group (second largest private property company in the UK) and together developed a low cost home loan securitization scheme for low income households in Republic of South Africa .  He incorporated this into the Arms off-set program and later developed a program that would assist in the supply chain of the Rotch Group property portfolio in the UK, with JSE listed DNA supply chains and BAe systems. With an understanding of off-set and countertrade, Adam was asked to assist in the development of D1 Oils with which Rotch’s partners owned shares.  Adam was instrumental in the listing of D1 Oils in October 2004 and incorporated an off-set credit program with Rolls Royce and D1.  He was also the driving force behind much of D1 Oils Jatropha planting programs in Africa as well as the joint venture with the then named Stancom tobacco company in Zambia.

Adam moved on to create C3 (Climate Change Corporation) and with the purchase of coconut oil mills in Mozambique to supply the company’s associate bio-diesel refineries in the UK.  He also developed together with Ernst & Young  a carbon credit program through a fuel switch project at these mills.  C3 Mozambique Lda won best industrial company in the country in 2007.
