Adam Civico is a former journalist who joined NB Communication as head of content marketing in May 2021.
His career began at the Barnsley Chronicle newspaper in his native South Yorkshire.
Starting as a junior district reporter he worked his way through the ranks to become assistant editor.
As well as writing award-winning news Adam also co-edited a monthly lifestyle magazine and helped oversee the development of the Chronicle’s news website.
In 2012, he swapped Barnsley for island living to become editor of The Shetland Times, a role he held until switching to NB Communication.
Under Adam’s editorship, The Shetland Times was twice named Highlands and Islands Newspaper of the Year and picked up an accolade for Best Use of Digital Media.
At NB Adam’s communication, writing and leadership skills are used to support the company’s wide range of clients, including working on Promote Shetland, the destination marketing service operated by NB Communication. As someone who moved to the isles Adam fully appreciates the attractions and challenges of island living.
Away from work Adam is a keen sports fan and has played for Lerwick football team LK Galaxy (until his legs give way) and helps to coach at Lerwick Rangers JFC. He is also a trustee of Shetland Recreational Trust.
To relax Adam enjoys cooking, gardening, and music. He supports Sheffield Wednesday FC and the England cricket team.
