Career History

Andy is a chartered accountant and has worked in the pharmaceutical industry since 1995, the first 13 years with AstraZeneca in the UK Marketing company.

adobestock_91577525In his time at AstraZeneca he has been responsible for managing the company’s finances and staff of the Finance Dept, whilst also taking them through large scale change management projects such as SAP implementations, Sarbannes Oxley compliance, downsizing and outsourcing to shared service centres.
For 10 years Andy was also the PPRS principal negotiator for AstraZeneca with the DH, responsible for all compliance and advisory work.

Latterly, Andy held the position of Supply Chain Director for AstraZeneca and was accountable for the successful delivery of their “Direct to Pharmacy” (“DTP”) in February 2008.

Rather than progress a successful career at AstraZeneca, Andy left the organisation to support other manufacturers in making the right decisions in areas that he believes he can add value.



Since June 2008 Andy has been working on his own, and sometimes with associates, to provide a first class service to his clients. The majority of new work that Andy gets is from personal recommendations from other clients – the best of all recommendations!
