Adam Witko grew up in Nottingham and is a qualified accountant with 25 years' experience, with companies such as GKN, Jaguar Land Rover.

He has run his own financial governance consultancy with clients that include companies such as Vodafone.
With significant international experience, Adam is pro-European, and performed a significant analysis on the effects of Brexit pre-referendum.
"My overall core values are built around trust. I value openness, transparency, and accountability, without it you are unable to confront a problem and let alone rectify it."
Economically, he is proponent of investment. Investment is not the same as a cost, without adequate investment no local economy is able to grow sustainably. That is the ultimate measure of true value.
Anti-corruption and anti-fraud, Adam has endlessly fought on behalf of a group of a people who have been the victim of such practises. Corruption takes money away from essential services and you end up paying more.
