Simon Holt, Managing Director, G&E Wealth Management Ltd

Andy is one of the most knowledgable and perceptive finance journalists I’ve known. He manages to combine deep understanding about a huge breadth of topics with an ability to get at the heart of an issue. He’s passionate about his profession and developing young talent for the future. I’ve always appreciated his ability to understand the commercial aspects of any debate, and importantly he’s damn good fun to be with.

Jeff Prestridge, Personal Finance Editor, The Mail on Sunday

I can write down on a postcard what Andy doesn’t know about personal finance. He’s on top of the finance game, better connected than the Astor family, and knows the personal  finance industry inside out. A shame he’s a poorer horse racing tipster than Radio Four’s Today programme!

Adrian Webb, Head of Marketing and Communications, esure and Sheilas’ Wheels

I have attended Masterclasses and events organised by Andrew for the last five years. He is a past master at bringing together PRs and journalists in effective and enjoyable ways. He understands the needs of both sides and provides innovative – and mutually beneficial – ways of bringing them together. 

David Turner, Chief Executive, Citywire

I have worked with Andrew on and off for more than 20 years and he has always been exceptionally professional in all he has done and invariably brings a new way of looking at how things should be approached. He is also an absolute pleasure to work with.

Philip Martin, Proposition & Marketing Director, Openwork

Andrew is ideally placed to help organisations as there are few financial journalists that come close to his breadth of experience and attention to detail. Whether he’s writing, editing, organising events, chairing judging sessions, or inspiring a new generation of financial journalists – all sit as natural skills.

Scott White, Head of Strategy and Communications, Legal & General Investments

Andrew is at the top of his profession and I highly recommend his range of talents to anyone. He works with absolute integrity at all levels and is part of an elite band of top level operators in the financial services industry.  He quite simply ‘gets it’ relentlessly hunting for, and inevitably delivering, that compelling difference to take communications to another level.
