It is a privilege to serve the community in such a worthwhile and meaningful way, and it is a real honour to have the opportunity to work with so dedicated and professional a team as that in the Surrey Air Ambulance, said Adrian.
Since Adrian joined the Navy at the age of 18, his career has taken him all over the world and he has had a number of key command appointments afloat and ashore. Much of his career has been at sea and he has seen active service in the Falklands and Northern Ireland. Adrian has also been Chief of Staff to Commander UK Maritime Forces as well as holding appointments as a strategic planner in the Ministry of Defence and Navy Command Headquarters.
We are all really delighted that Adrian has agreed to join us, says Anthony Monteuuis, chairman of Surrey Air Ambulance. He is a highly intelligent manand isa proven leader.It is a most exciting appointment for the air ambulance and I am confident that we have appointed a most able man to take the charity forward to greater success."
