Adam is the President and CEO of Aeronigma Solutions, an aviation-based global logistics firm, established in 2009 in Vancouver, B.C.
Aeronigma Solutions maintains a primary focus on project-based logistical solutions for the mining and resource sector. Aeronigma provides custom-made logistical solutions for remote, complex, domestic, and international projects, utilizing all modes of transport, ocean, air, truck, and rail. Aeronigma is also called upon to engage in a feasibility study to explore and start up capital projects requiring an achievable operational and financial logistical approach, to building infrastructure to support the project life, including remote air strips, aircraft procurement and selection, and pre-feasibility and feasibility studies to include CAP X / OP X strategies.
Partnered globally with Rock–it Cargo, Aeronigma offers world-class resources, managing global logistics for touring acts such as Lady Gaga, Bryan Adams, Cirque De Soleil and U2. Through the partnership of Rock–it Cargo, Aeronigma has a global reach of high-calibre resources and buying power with all international air carriers and marine providers.
Adam has a significant background in Aviation and Logistics, having started his aviation career after University in Calgary during Operation Desert Storm. Adam was responsible for the civilian airlift of all the equipment from Canada sent to fight the fires in Kuwait. This strategic airlift involved over 50 dedicated cargo and passenger flights from Canada to Kuwait.
Upon completing education in General Studies from the University of Calgary, Adam was recruited by Canadian charter carrier Canada 3000 Airlines. In 1992, Adam had his first touch with a B757-200 Aircraft from YVR – HNL; this was the first contracted flight Adam was responsible for. At the time, Canada 3000 Airlines operated 2 aircraft both in the B757-200 series. This rapidly grew to a total of 46 aircraft of various series… B757, A320, A318, A319, A330, A340.
With the introduction of the A330, Canada 3000 Airlines was instantly a player in the global wide-body market. Canada 3000 Airlines, at peak, flew 13 weekly flights into the Hawaiian Islands. Adam played a major role in the development of cargo traffic, both import and export in addition to interline traffic from Asia. Aloha Airlines was the chosen service provider under the leadership of Ken Best and Eddie Araujo.
One of Adam’s fondest memories and achievements was on the Island of Kona. Adam convinced local business owners Joe and Phil Wilson to utilize the B757 flights from Halifax, direct to Kona for Canadian lobster transport. Through the faith and trust of the Wilsons at Kona Cold Lobster, Adam was responsible for the very first Canadian Lobster tails to hit the Islands. Adam is still in contact with the Wilsons today!
Upon the demise of Canada 3000 in 2001, Adam served as GM of Products and Engineering at Cascade Aerospace. After a 3-year role, Adam returned to his roots in Logistics to work with the Pacific Group and secure the Logistics contract for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games under VANOC, the host organizer.
Throughout those seven years, Adam took a lead role in the support of all nations to attend the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Adam was personally responsible for managing international air and ocean logistics relating to the event, as well as liaising with the participating bodies, such as the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, Switzerland; the sponsors, such as the Japan Broadcasting Group, Heineken, Aggreko Power, and Samsung among others; and the participating teams from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.
Through this experience, Adam and his team at Aeronigma are often called upon to solve complex aviation-based problems. Recently, Aeronigma was brought in to support Aid Canada in the rebuilding and supply of Nepal after a devastating earthquake in the country.
Currently, Aeronigma is engaged in aircraft management for the Canadian North, supporting Cargo and Passenger flights to Canada’s diamond mines. Aeronigma is also under AOG Contract for several national Canadian carriers to maintain their emergency parts and supply under AOG conditions.
Adam resides in Vancouver, with his wife Megan, who is a US Attorney of Law, holding both California and Washington state bar credentials, daughter Zenna and son Valen, and daughter Isolde. Adam is a passionate car guy, and enjoys soccer with the kids and spending time at their beach home in Vancouver.
