WhO IS ADAM IVELL ?
Growing up the youngest in my year in a small town in Essex, I was very shy, prone to being bullied and struggled to find my place.
Now, as an "Adult" (apparently) I run & maintain my businesses. Make youtube videos in my spare time, I drift my Nissan Silvia & I will be back out on track in a Honda Civic again soon!
I am completely obsessed with Marketing and Branding.
Always wondering how and what I can do next to get that thrill for myself.
What Makes me, me?
I always loved cars, from as far back as I can remember.
I was comfortable around cars, instead of going and buying comic books, I'd buy Autotrader & Top Marques magazines and just study what cars were for sale, what options they came with. Yeah, I was a weird kid.
Dropping out of college to purse a career in car sales ended up in me getting made redundant when the recession hit the UK. But this wasn't all bad. I ended up resigning from my position at the dealer I ended up at and started to work for my Dad, who had multiple small businesses, one of which I took control of and started to learn how to operate a company.
It was in this year I learnt a lot about online retail. But in my spare time I started a small blog and called it "initforthestatus". On this I posted many, many different things from Holidays, to Car shoots, to Snowboarding & music. But it ended up turning into a car feature only blog, which then turned into a modified Honda only blog..
This grew quickly. I went all around the country and into Europe offering free photo shoots as I saw it as a way of marketing my brand. Which was now known as 6TWO1.
Over the years, the brand became a household name within the UK Honda Tuning community, creating our own line of parts & merchandise. Something I'm very proud of.
a new venture?
6TWO1 is running fantastically smooth. We have a line up of parts made to a very high manufacturing level. Something I was very specific about. If I wouldn't run it on my own cars, why would anyone else?
So I recently started up Bandit Supply Co a new brand I created & have wanted to create for 3 years, just didn't feel it was right. Until 2017.
I have so many ideas & plans for this company but they will all come clear in time..
