Richard Gahagan - CEO
My experience in recruitment
With over 17 years recruitment experience, I enjoy working with creative and hardworking people who are driven and want to make a difference to the world inside and outside of their working environment.
I’m sociable

Graduate in Business Studies and worked in Sales & Marketing in industry before moving into the world of recruitment. I have always loved helping people find talent or their next career move, or just generally advising people on the best ways to manage their careers.

I love working with motivated people who like helping others.

In addition to my role as CEO of Adam, I am also a proud father of two young daughters and an Ambassador for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, the largest Children’s Hospital in the UK.

Did you know?

Outside of work life I love most sports having been an active player in rugby and football. I am a keen skier and like hill walking and mountain biking.

I love meeting new people particularly the ones who have made a difference in inspiring others or are just starting out on their own journey.

I like wine and travelling with family and friends and choose which sports I watch with how well (or badly) my teams are doing!
