Andrew comes from a financial background having started his career within The Barclays Group where he held several senior management positions and gained over twenty years experience in corporate banking, intermediary business and high net worth complex lending. He went on to form his own specialist property finance and acquisition company helping select clients build diverse property portfolios.
His innate ability to proactively problem solve and approach deals from new and creative perspectives has led to high demand for his skills. A key element of his success lies in his unprecedented networking capabilities and connections around the world. These skills have seen him move into sectors as varied as stockbroking, financial consultancy, music publishing and film production.
He is a founder and financial director of Gennaker Films, who have recently completed filming of a feature length documentary about the life of boxing legend Joe Calzaghe which will be released later this year, as well as a key adviser to University of Wales Trinity Saint David. This role allows Andrew to draw on his wide range of contacts to create mutually beneficial investment opportunities for the university and those who work with them.
For the past five years Andrew has also worked with the charities Mellon Township Trust and Mellon Educate and has recently been appointed to the board of directors. Based in South Africa the charity aims to improve the lives of those living in townships by providing quality housing and education. This opportunity to further his philanthropic work is particularly exciting and a focus for Andrew in the coming years.
Loyal and energetic with a focus on making things happen, Andrew is often described as a ‘whirlwind’ of ideas and opportunities. His ability to locate unusual and specialist opportunities makes him the perfect partner to Adoreum.
