Following a management buyout in 2018, I took on the role of Managing Director, responsible for day to day operations as well as a continued focus on strategic hires. I have over 20 years’ experience building boards and leadership teams for growing UK businesses. During 7 years as a Partner at Bailey Fisher, I led all global CFO and FD searches, and built a new strand of business, focusing on strategic C-suite hires across manufacturing, engineering and production-focused companies.
I am proud of the role that Bailey Fisher continues to play in the growth of the Cambridge cluster and wider UK entrepreneurial ecosystem. I’m pleased to host many of our Leadership Series dinners for C-suite leaders in Cambridge and London, and to be a member of the judging panel for the Business Weekly Awards, recognising innovation and excellence in Cambridge and the Eastern region.
For 5 years I was Co-chair of Byte Night’s East Anglian Fundraising Activities for Action for Children, and remain very involved in the charity’s fundraising activities.
"Andrew placed me as CFO at Grass Roots Group and I was impressed with the way he brought the company and all its challenges to life for me. All the way through the interview process he kept in touch with me to understand what I was thinking and was a great facilitator of a match between me and the company."
