Quality and Risk Manager
Andy joined the financial services industry in 1985 as an administrator with Pearl Insurance. He progressed to being a financial adviser with Royal Insurance before moving into Sales Management. After many happy years with Royal, they merged with Sun Alliance and Andy was offered the opportunity to take a healthy redundancy at a time which suited him very well as his daughter had just been born. Enabling his wife to return to work to maintain her NHS Sister Grade, he took over the childcare and household responsibilities for 8 months before returning to work managing the mortgage consultants within a small local estate agency. As these brokers were affiliated to Allied Dunbar, Andy was introduced to that company and in 2001 he joined them to work in his current role as a Quality Manager. When Allied Dunbar went through the transitions which resulted in the creation of Openwork, Andy stayed and is now a much-loved member of the Cavendish Brooke team as well where he looks after our compliance and keeps us on our toes!
Out of work, his hobbies are going to the cinema, keeping fit in the gym and taking long walks by the sea with his husband. He is also an avid collector of 1940-1970s Ladybird books and has over 400 in his collection.
