Using the analogy of a bicycle wheel with each spoke representing an aspect of life, Andrew demonstrates his belief in a balanced approach to life; any spoke out of kilter means the wheel does not function effectively.

Andrew is committed to ensuring that people seeking financial planning when retiring or resigning, receive honest, ethical advice which best suits their individual circumstances.

Andrew is an outgoing, sociable person who believes in building and maintaining positive relationships with clients, colleagues and business partners.

Andrew qualified as a schoolteacher and taught Maths and Science for five years. He joined Illovo Sugar as a Training Officer, was later promoted to Training manager and shortly thereafter transferred to Umzimkulu Mill, in Port Shepstone, as Human Resource manager. During this time he completed his Bachelor of Commence Honours degree through Unisa.

In 1996, he joined Murray & Roberts as a Human Resource manager, and in 2000 relocated from Durban to Johannesburg, taking up a position as a Group Benefits manager in the company employee benefits division. As a part of his job responsibilities, Andrew worked with people nearing retirement and employees seeking financial planning assistance. He completed his Post Graduate Diploma in Financial planning in 2002, thereby becoming a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®. In 2005, he completed his advanced post-graduate Diploma in Financial Planning, majoring in Asset types and Investments and Principles of Portfolio planning and Management. He worked for 18 years with Murray & Roberts before joining BHP Billiton as a Senior Benefits Consultant, where he was involved in extensive project work planning for the demerger within BHP Billiton and the formation of the South32 SA Limited company.

Andrew loves most sporting activities and recently swapped running and golf for rowing and spends many weekends at Victoria Lake in Germiston. Having left the sea and many hours fishing and diving for crayfish, he has fallen in love with the bushveld. Andrew plans to travel extensively in Botswana, Namibia, and other parts of Africa.
