Andrew is a Director in Wallbrook’s London office and heads our work in English-speaking sub-Saharan Africa. He began his career with the Royal Navy at BRNC Dartmouth, before moving into intelligence roles at the Ministry of Defence and Cabinet Office. During this time his remit included the Near East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
He subsequently moved into the private sector, holding positions at a number of large consultancies. The most recent of these ended with Andrew heading the operational work of the firm's Sub-Saharan Africa practice. Within each of these consultancies, he provided intelligence and advice to clients on cases ranging from pre-transactional due diligence through to asset traces and fraud investigations. Notably, he worked in-country on high-profile corruption investigations, including in the Gulf.
Andrew subsequently spent five years, between 2014 and 2019, independently consulting at a number of financial institutions, including Macquarie, ICBC Standard Bank, Jupiter Asset Management and DvB Bank. He specialised in completing risk assessments and remediation exercises across a variety of geographies and sectors, including advisory and capital markets, asset financing, asset management, and trading. He returned to the consultancy space with Wallbrook in 2019.
Andrew holds a bachelor's degree in economics and politics from the University of York and a master's degree in international politics from the University of Sheffield.
