Andrew heads up the team at Concertus and sees his prime focus as ensuring the business runs smoothly, ethically and profitably.
He first joined the Architects Department at Suffolk County Council in 1988 as a trainee electrical engineer and took the position as they promised to support him whilst he studied for his degree in Building Services Engineering. Since then, he has risen through the ranks, gaining a reputation as an honest and trustworthy colleague who is well respected as an experienced professional. Particular highlights of his career have been working on Beaumont Primary School in Hadleigh and the Suffolk Building Schools for the Future programme. He is also proud of his involvement in the Suffolk Biomass Programme that won the Ashden Award (a globally recognised measure for excellence in the field of sustainable energy) in 2010, which was presented by David Attenborough.
Andrew loves the variety in his job and doesn’t see a difference between the public and private sectors; ‘the nuts and bolts are still the same. A calm, capable and compassionate leader, very little frustrates him. He has a great empathy with his colleagues and loves the results that come from his abilities to encourage, persuade and advise.
