After an wonderful education by the Benedictine monks at Downside School, Andrew went almost straight in to selling, which included Carpets, Life Assurance and water to thirsty tourists in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.
Then in September 1981 he entered Estate Agency with Sturgis & Sons in Wimbledon Village, but Prime Central London beckoned, so by 1983 he had been poached by Allsop & Co in KInightsbridge acting for The Crown Estate, Sun Life Nominees and The Prudential.
Then in 1988 at the age of 26 he was recruited by Lane Fox to set up their London Residential Operation, with another young negotiator from South Kensington, Lulu Egerton. Over the next 19 years he and Lulu together built from nothing one of the most respected high end niche Estate Agency business in central London.
In 2007 Andrew and others agreed to the perfect merger with Strutt & Parker, two hugely complimentary businesses, which is now one of the largest privately owned property advisor in the UK.
What he often says is remarkable about what he does is that he still loves the business, has no difficulty in working 60+ hours a week but never thought he would be a workaholic!!!!
Andrew has lived in London all his life, is married to Catharine (nee Faulkner) and has a boy and a girl (Ampleforth and St Mary's Shaftesbury). He is in love with any moving object and pastimes include, Flying (fixed wing and Microlights), Sailing his Dunkirk Little Ship around the east coast.
