I was very fortunate enough to work with Andrew when I managed the Consumer & Retail Partnerships Division at QBE.
Andrew consulted to various business units within the Division and I worked closely with him in dealing with regulatory bodies to determine remediation , compliance and best practice in the Motor dealers arena.
Andrew is not only a subject matter expert with an excellent eye for detail and unparalleled knowledge of the regulatory environment, he is also a 24/7 guy with an unmatched work ethic in his consultancy capacity. He also has the ability to see the wider strategic play and advise commercially in this sense. Could not recommend him more highly.
I have worked with Andrew in a number of capacities over many years. He brings exceptional expertise, knowledge and value to any work that he does. His work ethic is second to none and capability to work with people at all levels of a business to drive engagement and implementation is a key reason why Andrew is such a valued and successful consultant.
Andrew and I have, initially as my client, worked together for more than twelve years on numerous and varied automotive finance projects; most recently in the area of digital transformation for Tier 1 Muti national companies as well as SME’s in Australia, UK and throughout Asia Pacific. Andrew’s innate ability to filter out extraneous distractions allows for a rapid understanding of the crux of any project. This pragmatic approach combined with his business acumen and extensive knowledge of the automotive finance and leasing sectors fuels a robust work ethic that allows for completion of projects on time and on budget. I look forward to building further on our professional relationship by collaborating with Andrew on future projects as they arise.
I have had the pleasure of working with and alongside Andrew on various projects in the world of financial services over the last few years in my capacity of global financial services director for INCHCAPE plc. Andrew is a creative and innovative leader with a highly tuned capability’s and extremely broad knowledge in the world of financial services in the auto space. He is a solid Fountain of knowledge to lean upon and provides sound clear advice and guidance with a no-nonsense non-political approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and his company in partnering in a broad range of strategic initiatives within this sector, being a reliable and progressive partner to INCHCAPE on many programs over the last few years.
