Andrew began his career as a footballer with clubs including Wycombe Wanderers and Marlow FC. In 1988 after spotting a gap in the market, Andrew’s commitment to providing better services and solutions to customers led him to establish Annodata, with a vision to improve client document management through technology.
Annodata went on to become one of the UK’s top independent providers of IT Services with an annual turnover in excess of £80 million. In 2016, after leading the company for 27 years, Andrew sold the business to Kyocera and following a smooth and successful transition period, Andrew left in 2018.
Andrew is now involved in a number of entrepreneurial business projects and sits on the Board of some of the companies he has invested in including Oakman Inns & Restaurants Ltd, F3GROUP and White Oak Financial Management.
Andrew continues to be heavily involved in various philanthropic activities.
Recent years have seen him run, hike, climb, canoe and cycle; summiting Kilimanjaro and Ben Nevis; taking part in triathlons; completing a cycle challenge to Paris and this year, leading a team of cyclists on a 330km trip to Amsterdam. Across his charitable pursuits for organisations such as Scannappeal, where he is a Trustee, The British Legion, Help for Heroes and Marie Curie, Andrew has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for worthy causes.
