Adam Coombs

Business Consultant

It was from an early age that my interest in business and entrepreneurial spirit kicked in. At a young age I started collecting ex-display carpet samples for free from shops that would ordinarily throw them away. I then sold them regularly on outdoor markets, with the help of my parents, making a good amount each day. At that age it was a lot of money to me but what I enjoyed the most was meeting and interacting with new people.

I joined Waterstons in 2017 and since then I have worked as one of the lead consultants on a number of client projects within the manufacturing, distribution and transport, medical and professional services industries. As part of these projects, I have worked in partnership with my clients to create a strategy to support the company’s ambitions, define and improve business processes, define business requirements, help clients select the right systems to support their business, and project manage system implementations.
I have also been involved in a number of mergers and acquisitions projects from undertaking due diligence, to creating the transition strategy and helping manage elements of the transition to the new company.

Before joining Waterstons I worked within a small team at Procter and Gamble that planned and managed all customer deliveries across Northern Europe. This gave me a good grounding in gap analysis and operational efficiency. I also led a number of key projects which reduced costs, saved time and improved customer service.

I have a first-class degree in Business Leadership and Corporate Management (BA Hons). In early 2020 I was awarded Chartered Manager (CMgr MCMI) status from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Outside of work I love to travel and explore new places, especially to the USA where I have been lucky enough to tour around both the east and west coasts. I am close to my family and friends and enjoy socialising with them. My claim to fame has to be starring in the 2006 Bunty annual where I featured in the first storyboard of the edition, titled “Happy Families”.
