I have been in Telstra for 19 years, started in a call centre in Melbourne, although most of my Telstra life has been in the Customer Service Delivery business, performing roles or leading teams in the field technician environment. My team’s role in Telstra is to install, construct and maintain (copper, HRC and Fibre distribution) and monitor the quality of the distribution network.
I love being out with the team, understanding their day-to-day challenges and how I can support them to improve the way we service our customers and our business. I want to ensure service to our customers is consistently outstanding across every part of Australia.
I am a mad AFL follower supporting the North Melbourne Kangaroos. I follow the Broncos in the NRL and since moving to Queensland I’ve gotten to know the rules of NRL! I love cricket and I am always willing to have a chat about any sport.

Adam joined Telstra as Director of Digital Media and Content in May 2012, and is charged with overseeing the development of a suite of products in entertainment, news, sports, lifestyle and personalisation that are delivered across four digital screen platforms (mobile, web, tablet and IPTV), such as music streaming service MOG, and the hugely popular AFL and NRL Live Apps.
A highly regarded international digital media executive, Adam was previously executive vice president of digital and direct ad agency Proximity Worldwide in San Francisco. He was also a founder member of DDB digital agency Tribal and prior to that spent six years running his own business in the television and film industry
Adam was drafted to the Sydney Swan Football Club from North Ballarat U18 at No.47 in the 1997 National Draft. Adam made his debut in 1999 and finished his first season of AFL with the 1999 Rising Star medal.
In more than 250 games for the Swans Adam has become one of the stars of the AFL. He is extremely hard for opposition teams to match up on as he is very quick for his size and has wonderful skills. Adam’s breakthrough season in 2003 saw him share the AFL’s highest honor, the Brownlow medal with Nathan Buckley and Mark Ricciuto as well as win All Australian Honours and the Swans Best and Fairest. In 2005 he played an instrumental role in Sydney’s first premiership win. Adam again had an outstanding season in 2006 that culminated in his second Brownlow Medal, Swans Best and Fairest and All Australian honours.
In late 2004 Adam was invited to join the National Indigenous Council (NIC), an advisory body to the Federal Government on Indigenous affairs. The NIC met 4-5 times each year in Canberra to discuss Indigenous issues and provide expert advice to the Government on improving outcomes for Indigenous Australians. Adam found his four years on the NIC very educational to learn how the Government works and how the Government approaches Indigenous Issues.
The Goodes-O’Loughlin Foundation
At the end of 2009 Adam set up The Goodes-O’Loughlin Foundation (GO Foundation) with Michael O’Loughlin. The GO Foundation aims to help indigenous Australians set and achieve life goals.
The Foundation will exist to enable a brighter future for indigenous Australians. By creating a series of meaningful partnerships, the Foundation will provide the link between Indigenous Australia and Corporate Australia, with a focus on the areas of greatest disadvantage, whether these be in the cities, towns or rural and remote areas of Australia.
The Foundation will be focused on providing sustainable outcomes – encouraging healthy living, a good education, and ultimately leading to getting a career.
