Our Team

Adam Davey

Adam Davey

Co-Founder & Director

Adam brings over 30 years of professional expertise to the team from both public and private sectors. With extensive experience of supporting businesses on their day-to-day HR issues, Adam has also designed, developed and implemented HR strategies in a range of organisations and sectors from PLCs to SMEs.

Supporting growing businesses and those facing change is a particular speciality, which has included him working as the interim HR Director of an international business based in Australia. 

Deeply connected to Lincoln, Adam is a pillar of support in the community. His previous work has seen him as the former Chair of the Lincolnshire Branch of the CIPD. He’s also a seasoned runner, completing his 18th Great North Run and conquering his 1st London Marathon. Along the way, he raised funds for St Barnabas Hospice (Lincolnshire) and Centrepoint.

Mark Dyer

Mark Dyer

Co-Founder & Director

Mark brings over 30 years experience in helping companies turning their plans into a reality.

Mark originally trained as an Engineer and working in both Blue-chip Companies and Local and Central Government Authorities, these skills have helped Mark bring a logical and pragmatic approach to his work. He is also a firm believer that when each assignment has finished, the company and its people are more knowledgeable and equipped than before he started; a belief that is born out by the number of repeat contracts awarded and the continual mentoring of teams after he has left.

A qualified football referee and an avid football fan, when not working Mark can be found enjoying the fresh air and exploring the countryside either on his bike or in his self-restored 30 year old Campervan.

Dean Bruce

Dean Bruce

HR Consultant

Dean joined Petaurum with over 10 years of retail management experience. During this time, his experiences of being at the sharp-end of managing diverse teams and the operational implementation of HR and L&D strategy within stores led to an ever-blooming passion for HR. He funded his Level 5 Intermediate Diploma in HR Management and has spent time working in white-collar outsourcing as an HR Administrator. Dean, just like Adam, has strong ties to Lincoln. With his previous work as a dedicated member of the CIPD Lincolnshire Branch Committee, he goes above and beyond to contribute to the HR community.

In the periods between work, Dean enjoys walks with his dog, a good audiobook and watching football at the LNER Stadium where Lincoln City have been known to (occasionally) win!
