Andy has significant experience providing technical support on UK and overseas projects, mainly in the defence sector. In defence, he has implemented his cost analysis and risk management knowledge across a variety of domains and on several high profile projects. Andy is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, which recognises his industry experience and leadership.
His interest in defence started with MoD sponsorship in 1998 to study engineering at Bristol University. He later undertook a postgraduate law conversion course, which enables him to understand wider issues on complex programmes and assists him with communicating, and therefore resolving, analytical problems. Andy is one of only a few International Cost Estimating & Analysis Association’s Certified Cost Estimators in the UK.
