What people say about Andy

"Best wishes for the future - I've enjoyed working with you, and valued your contribution to BT."
(Sir Christopher Bland, Chairman  BTGroup).

"I have worked with Andy in various roles over the last five years. I have found him to be a very "solutions-oriented" business partner, with a great ability to drive forward any project he gets his teeth into. He is energetic, determined, and imaginative in finding solutions to difficult issues." (Stuart Prebble has had a remarkable media career from his early days as an investigative journalist and documentary maker. He was Controller of Network Factual Programmes at ITV and Chief Executive of Granada Sky Broadcasting, ONdigital and ITV. Stuart is currently a Director of Liberty Bell, an award winning indie production house.)

I have worked with Andy for about ten years. Andy is one of the most innovative, forward thinking people that I have met, who has come up with some brilliant ideas which have also been implemented. He has excellent relationships in business at the highest levels and is able to build teams to implement these ideas. I have always enjoyed working with Andy and look forward to doing so in the future. (Nigel Sands, Senior Manager, Long Term Financial Planning, BBC).

Andy is an outstanding sales and business development operator with a dynamic outlook and a clear eye for new opportunities. His ability to lead and inspire makes him a good team leader and he also combines strategic thinking with a strong track record of revenue delivery.  (Gay Bell, Managing Partner, Platform PR)

One of Andy's many strengths is his dependability. If he says he will do something, he does it. He has a strong ability to translate customer requirements into an implementation plan and has the determination and interpersonal skills needed to bring many parts of a big organisation together in order to ensure a cohesive and effective delivery to the customer. (Russell Inman, General Manager, Crown Castle International)

"Andy is very experienced in the converging media and communications worlds. His knowledge of the space and creative ability has created many opportunities and will continue to do so." (Danny McLaughlin, Managing Director  BTMajor Business).

"Andy is a committed and tenacious businessman. He was a believer in Digital Terrestrial from the start - when many other experts faltered in their faith - and he played an important role in creating the original platform and in supporting the re-launch of the free to air platform in its current guise." (John Egan has had a long, varied and successful career in the media business. In the early 90s he was a principle architect of the Carlton TV bid to win the London ITV weekday franchise and soon rose to the board. He has held a number of key directorships in commercial television and was one of the first people to see the possibilities in digital terrestrial TV. John now runs sit-up, a company operating the two most innovative home shopping channels in the UK, 'bid-up.tv' and 'price-drop.tv'. with his joint MD, Ashley Faull.)

"I've worked closely with Andy in his former role as Head of Media Ventures at BT Group over 5 years. In all the dealings I had with him he demonstrated an entrepreneurial streak, a clear commercial awareness and an ability to cut through any amount of red tape. His significant knowledge of the whole media industry was an undoubted benefit in devising new strategies and will, I'm sure, prove of great use to the companies who he will work with in the future." (Matt Seaman has an exceptional spread of experience in the television marketplace having held senior posts at BSkyB, ITV Digital, NTL, Dixons and Freeview. Matt is currently Sales and Marketing Director at the DTT venture, Top Up TV.)

I spent 15 years in corporate leadership roles including two years running a sales training consultancy. In the late 1980s I pushed through some big call centre modernisation initiatives and then moved through sales, marketing and sales consultancy roles until my last and most exciting corporate job as Head of Media Ventures for BTGroup.
