Advisory Board, Chair
Andrew has experience leading Advisory Boards for a variety of successful, innovative and tech-focused businesses since 2010. His achievements include successfully navigating a business through the disruption of the GFC and Government change on to record profit levels, and global expansion of another business with successful operations across multiple jurisdictions.
His expertise lies in working with privately owned, professional services businesses operating at $1.5m – $30m turnover who are innovative, strategically focused and ambitious about achieving their objectives. He delivers a blend of commercial, financial and strategic advise to identify a business’ impediments and then crafts focused solutions to help them overcome it, traditionally in a 18 to 36 month timeframe.
Andrew is an Associate Director in the Business Services division of BDO in Brisbane. His passion in consulting and advisory solutions coupled with cloud technology was fostered in New Zealand. His approach adds significant value to the traditional accounting approach and the client experience. He led BDO New Zealand in this space, and was instrumental in developing a strategic partnership with Xero. He was also central to delivering the BDODrive advisory approach across New Zealand, and continues to develop this approach internationally.
