For 6 years Andrew led Egon Zehnder’s global Assessment and development practice. During this time he coauthored several articles for HBR in particular “From curious to competent” which describes how it is possible to predict and then help to unlock potential in global business leaders. Over the last 10 years Andrew has regularly coached business leaders, often as they step up into major new roles as CEO. Centre to the approach is to help executives understand what might be holding them back from being the best they can be and then working on clear strategies to break through any barriers
I love helping clients to fully tap their organization’s resources and potential by making better choices about people.
Before joining Egon Zehnder, Andrew worked in the corporate finance department of Cazenove & Co., where he mainly handled M&A transactions involving industrial and financial-service companies. He began his career in a nuclear research laboratory, then designed power plants before concentrating on strategy work in that sector.
Andrew earned a BSc in mechanical engineering from the University of Birmingham and an MBA from the London Business School. He is very devoted to his large family, which includes two dogs, and makes an effort to stay in touch with friends and relatives. Andrew also enjoys long-distance cycling; recently he completed a trip across Europe in support of a children’s charity.
