Adam Young began his traineeship at about the age of 19 while working for Hudsons.
He began by working in the timber yard and at the completion of his traineeship he began involved in internal sales for Formex. After six months he filled the role of sales rep and worked within the office, this lasted for 6-8 months before he moved on to woodhouse timbers as a Sales Rep.
He has completed a Sales and Marketing course at TAFE and a number of TABMA short course to improve his skill base and career prospects.
