During this time he completed his MSc in Marketing and Executive MBA but one of the duties Andrew particularly enjoyed, included hosting many incentive travel trips to some of the most wonderful parts of the world (someone had do it), his favourite being in Africa and the Indian Ocean. Once the globe-trotting bug had subsided, he put down firm routes, and now lives in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Subsequent to this Andrew worked as an executive ‘Interim’ for a number of years, specialising in business recovery, development and growth. The next phase of Andrew's career saw him taking on a new challenge and he made the decision to do something completely different when he qualified as an IFA and Stock Broker and then set up his own Wealth Management Business, where his area of expertise and focus was on developing a High Net Worth and Ultra High Net Worth client portfolio.
Having sold his Wealth Management Business interests, he was engaged by The Explorations Company in 2012 on a consultancy basis to help them out with their rebranding process and a variety of sales and marketing initiatives and has since that time worked on a number of different projects for the business.
He is now responsible for the TEC website and web developer relationship, overseeing its look, feel and tone of voice, including other digital marketing initiatives and content production. Andrew has also recently helped Nicola to introduce TEC’s new philanthropic travel arm to the website, Philanthropy Plus.
Being a keen advocate of new technology and the requirement to keep pace with the ever increasing speed of change, Andrew completed a further MSc in Digital Marketing in 2018 and is also now an SEO practitioner and ghost writer.
Andrew has a natural passion for and interest in conservation and wildlife and in particular ornithology where many of his earlier years are remembered climbing the unclimbable to observe and photograph birds during their nesting seasons….it’s not something that he would encourage anyone doing today of course!
