Adam Hartley

Commercial Director

Adam is an energetic, hard-working, knowledgeable and target driven sales engineer with an extensive, successful track record. He has been described as “innately charismatic and engaging”.

He finds it easy to engage with customers, colleagues and people from all walks of life. He has developed a loyal client base in every organisation he has worked with, and has excellent relationships with colleagues at every level.

He takes every opportunity for personal and professional improvement, which has helped him to develop as a talented and effective manager, and leader, as well as being a successful ‘hands on’ sales engineer. This has provided a platform for him to develop and enhance the skills and attitudes of others around him. The outcome is a productive and motivated workforce that delivers excellent products and services, resulting in highly satisfied customers and a sustainable business.

He is very driven to succeed and highly organised. He can juggle multiple tasks, simultaneously, using effective time management skills and planning, to enable me to meet, often, tight deadlines. He is passionate about engineering and manufacturing and keenly follows recent developments in the field in order to understand the changing sector needs and how this can apply to current projects. He is constantly scanning the markets that we serve and keeps a sharp eye on the competition in order to maximise opportunities.

Having trained through an apprenticeship scheme, he believes in developing new engineers by encouraging and coaching people through vocational training. He has overseen the education route of apprentices from school leavers through to career changers. He seeks opportunities to take part in activities to encourage GCSE students to consider apprenticeships as an alternative to other further education routes. Something he is keen to continue to develop at HCL as we grow.
