Andy started his career as a vehicle technician following in the footsteps of his old man who was a Mercedes Benz engineer. After 4 years serving in the military for the Royal Signals Regiment, Andy made his debut in the security world joining Securitas in 1997. 

In 2002, Andy was seconded to PWG and was instrumental in the setup and delivery of the successful ‘hawkeye’ project which was designed to tackle the growing threat of armed robberies and protect cash in transit for several high street banks. This project was a real success and developed into ‘grapevine’ a dedicated model of intelligence gathering for the Post Office.

By 2009, Andy was running the PWG control room and was responsible for coordinating the operational command and control for a wide variety of intelligence based security services. His career continued at a fast pace, gaining valuable experience on the ground whilst broadening his horizons at higher education with a diploma in business management. 

Andy became a Director in 2016 and has continued to develop his skills in many areas which includes successfully achieving several accreditations, delivering e-learning packages whilst helping to oversee the overall growth strategy for the business.
