Adair Management Team

Craig Watkins

General Manager

Craig joined Adair in 2005 after serving in the Australian Defence Force for 10 years in an emergency services paramedical role. Craig served in various roles and positions throughout his Army service, which included several operational or international deployments to East Timor, Malaysia and Iraq as well as serving in most states in Australia.

Craig originally joined Adair as a training consultant and has since expanded his knowledge through extensive in-house training and experience to progress to the position of Senior Consultant, Portfolio Manager and then ultimately assuming the role of General Manager. Craig has brought much operational, training and emergency service experience to the organisation, which has complemented its strong background in Fire Industry Training.

Mike Donegan

Managing Director

Mike Donegan has been involved in the Fire Protection Industry for over 40 years and has worked within the FPAA (Fire Protection Association Australia) for a vast majority of this time, including as a Board Member. 

Mike has built strong relationships with industry experts, government planning committees and local councils around the country. There have been many dynamic changes in the Fire Protection Industry over the years and Mike has ensured he has kept abreast of these issues and how they affect our clients and their needs.

As an experienced and qualified Fire Industry Practitioner, Mike has an excellent appreciation that all Fire Industry Practitioners strive to recommend, install and maintain fire protection for the protection of our community.

The constant change in Standards, Building codes and other legislation, combined with the lack of trained labour, are challenges confronting fire protection professionals and businesses in general. 

Mike’s extensive experience in all aspects of the fire protection industry, makes him well placed to help the community get the benefits that evacuation consulting provides.

Mike holds a Master’s degree in Business Management, Certificate II and Certificate III and other qualifications in Fire Protection, a Certificate IV in Training and is an accredited FPAA – NSW FPAS practitioner.
