Hotwire | Adrian Talbot - Hotwire

I am Hotwire’s Global CFO, responsible for our finances across all of our offices.

I trained as a Chartered Accountant with BDO in London and in the early part of my career was an internal auditor for the worldwide operations of United Business Media and Hilton International Hotels.

My career in the public relations industry began in 2003 when I joined Burson Marsteller as Finance Director in their London office.  In 2009, I joined Instinctif Partners as CFO and I was a key member of the global management team which led the preparation for a successful sale of the business to private equity in 2011.

More recently, I also spent a year in the advertising industry as Commercial Director at BBH, and led the integration of Tesco’s advertising business which was awarded to BBH in January 2015.

I have a real passion for developing and supporting commercial relationships and a proven track record in supporting client teams to win and retain business. This includes pre and post pitch analysis, negotiation with clients and procurement, extensive networking at senior levels and directly sourcing leads and new work.

I am a fluent German speaker, play piano and sing Bass with the City of London Choir. I am married with three children.
