Adrian Gilmore/ProVerum Medical

Adrian Gilmore is the chief executive officer of ProVerum Medical, a Dublin- based men’s health company dedicated to providing new and effective means for physicians to treat symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Born in Cork to a father from Dublin and mother from Kerry, Adrian’s first jobs were as a 12-year-old caddie at Ballybunion Golf Club and helping in the family pub, The Bunker. He studied law at Dublin’s Trinity College, but later chose not to finish his degree and immigrated to the U.S. in 1987. He began his medical career in 1990 with Becton Dickinson and later went on to serve as president of Terumo Medical Corp and CEO of MetaCure, Inc.

“I feel very fortunate and proud to have been born and raised in Ireland,” says Adrian. “I have traveled all over the world, personally and professionally, and found that people welcome me with open arms, largely based upon my nationality – I don’t know of any country in the world where Irish visitors are unwelcome!” Adrian currently resides in Orlando, FL, and is the proud father of two teenagers, Lillian, 19, and Jack, 16.
