Craig McAdam - Warehouse Operations Controller

On leaving Lancaster Boys School in Leicester at the age of 16 Craig started working at a local solicitors firm as an admin clerk and at the same time he enrolled on a two year computer course at Loughborough College. After four years with the law firm he was ready for a change and moved out of an office environment in to a warehouse with local office supplies company, Office Depot. After a couple of years of general warehouse duties Craig was made team leader and stayed with the company for 20 years.

The company went through a major re-structure and Craig was one of a number of people to be made redundant but Office Depot’s loss was to be Warren’s gain as he joined our growing warehouse team, with responsibility for ensuring the smooth and efficient running of the warehouse including the handling and control of several thousand tonnes of stock, sales order preparation and despatch, as well as waste control and equipment maintenance. 

Craig lives in Desford, a village near Hinckley in Leicestershire with his wife and young twin boys – Kyle and Luke. Football is a big part of life in the McAdam household as both boys play for Notts Forest youth team and this means lots of Mum’s taxis being needed to take them to training and matches four times a week.   

Craig himself finished playing only recently; having sustained an injury he decided at the age of 40 it was time to hang up his boots.  His involvement with the glorious game continues with the coaching of youngsters of the youth football club he started from scratch in 2010. This all came about because of the lack of a local club for his sons to join and six years on the club has over 200 members. Although the club started as a youth club, it has now amalgamated with the adult side so the youngsters can progress right the way through if they wanted to.
