Throughout his time in the greyhound industry Adrian has been passionate about the advancement of the 13 greyhound Clubs. He was instrumental in the formation of Greyhound Clubs Victoria, becoming the inaugural Chairman. He has worked exceptionally hard in the last 3 years to ensure Greyhound Clubs Victoria has a strong voice and works collaboratively with GRV to enhance the performance of the 13 clubs.  Residing in a small country town has seen Adrian develop a very strong community spirit. He’s a Life Member and former President of the Nar Nar Goon Football Club as well as being a founding Board member of the recently reformed West Gippsland Football Netball competition. This
has kept Adrian in close contact with the ‘grass roots’ sport. Adrian and his wife Christine have a new addition to the household, Shadow - a retired racing greyhound - who has made himself completely at home in the paddocks and house.
