Adam Lloyd

Adam Lloyd was a member of ARI NSW and was a Director of International Quadratics Australia (IQ). Adam sadly passed away in March 2021.

IQ was established in 1976 and merged with Pierce Pool Supplies in 2008 bringing two commercial entities synonymous with aquatics together. Adam Lloyd and his father David were always avid supporters of ARI NSW for many years dating back to the late 1990s.

In 2010, Adam Lloyd joined the ARI committee as the Commercial Representative, which was a new position on the committee at the time. In this role, Adam became the voice of the aquatic trade on the committee. He worked tirelessly to improve the relationship between the committee, its members and the industry, and amongst all his peers.

Adam Lloyd's achievements included:

  • Member of ARI NSW.
  • The ARI Commercial Representative from approximately 2010 – 2014.
  • Supporter of ARI via sponsorship packages, and contributor to the establishment.
  • Strong advocate with Government bodies such as NSW Health on clarification and reform for operating guidelines in the aquatic industry.
  • Involvement in ARI Business Planning activities.
  • Conduit for the industry – providing support, assistance and advice to many pool professionals, nationally and internationally.

In recognition of Adam Lloyd's passion, dedication and support of ARI NSW and the aquatic and leisure industry as a whole, the Adam Lloyd Memorial Spirit Award has been established. The aim is for the award to be given to someone with a generous spirit and who is dedicated to the industry, just like what Adam was.
