Adam Wilson – Owner & Mentor
My career spans over three decades. My early career was in sales, marketing and product management roles for such firms as Boral, Spalding Sporting Goods and Mercury Marine. It was when I started at NAB in 1997 that my career really took off – a quick series of promotions in the Leasing Finance and Asset Finance Division that took my family and I interstate and overseas in a matter of a few years. Upon my return to Australia I worked for three years as General Manager Corporate with Australia’s premier salary packaging and novated leasing Company – NLC Pty Ltd (now part of SG Fleet Ltd).
In December 2009 I started my own company with various offshoots-including part-ownership in my father’s recruitment firm Wilbart Associates Pty Ltd which is going strong. My primary work in the past five years has been in business coaching and executive mentoring. In the last three years I’ve also added group training facilitation to my suite.
I’ve worked with some extremely talented people in the past, who continue to inspire me today. My biggest buzz though is seeing my clients grow, develop and overcome their own blind spots – and achieve what they really want to achieve. It’s just the best job in the world.
In my spare time I dabble in golf, music and love travelling a bit more now my children are adults.
My personal Mission and motto is simple – to help and to serve.
