    Adam Paris

    COO

    Born and bred in Hertfordshire, Adam was always destined for a career in recruitment given his sparkling personality and boyish good looks. Having started out in the construction industry, Adam moved into recruitment with a London based IT recruitment company. After 5 years working hard and playing hard he joined DCP where he now works even harder but doesn’t have time to play as a young family keeps him busy at home.

    Adam is a Spurs season ticket holder and can be heard commenting every Monday morning “that’s it, I am never going again”. When not hunting out the world’s datacenter talent, he can be found arguing with Steve over the best team in London.  His biggest achievements include becoming top biller at DCP and eating a whole Victoria sponge cake on his most recent birthday.
