Before joining CIOT, he worked at the Pensions Ombudsman as Deputy Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for all customer facing services. He is an MBA graduate, and is professionally accredited as a chartered manager and chartered engineer.

Having previously served as an officer in the Royal Air Force, Andrew has had a unique career as an ex-military officer, combining military and senior civilian leadership experience.
