Andy qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Coopers and Lybrand (now PwC) in Leeds in 1997. Shortly after qualification Andy moved into the corporate finance team where he spent three years before joining McInnes Corporate Finance in 2000. Andy remained with the team through the acquisition by the Begbies Traynor Group in 2005 before leaving to become a founder member of Sentio Partners.
Andy lives in North Leeds with his wife and two young children. He has finally hung up his football boots after over 20 years of service to the lower echelons of the Yorkshire Amateur League but can still be found on a 5-a-side pitch on occasion. He is also a keen skier and hacks around Headingley Golf Club, when the opportunities arise.
