‘Andy’s grasp of what matters to consumers, to commercial partners and how he excludes the superfluous is brilliant. He can distill the most important aspects and drivers of success into a roadmap that others follow. His ability to focus on where teams should place their bets to get the best return on their efforts is natural and easily communicated. Whatever the medium he gets it, and more importantly he helps you get it as well’.

Keith Walker, Managing director, Specialist consumer tech, Future PLC
