Born in '51 you'd be forgiven for thinking it was 1851 having looked at his list of qualifications! Andy is an ex Royal Navy Officer who is quite literally a master of all trades. With many strings to his bow, AJ is a great asset to our team! Having left school into a two year apprentice-ship with Jaguar, AJ quickly got into working with racing cars. Carpentry and sailing were his next loves before joining the Navy for 16 years!

With an eye for detail and extensive experience in dynamic risk management AJ relishes working with other people to solve problems using principles of action centred leadership and open communication to create a positive and rewarding working environment. With a love for mentally and physically challenging environment's his positive attributes and multiple skill set give the office and the clients a mind-set that everything is achievable!

Andy says of himself "I relish working with other people to solve problems using principles of action centred leadership and open communication to create a positive and rewarding working environment."

Not content with simply flying helicopters and fixed wing aircraft all over the world, Andy then became an officer for Naval Air Warfare Development before retiring to enable him to commit more time with his true love outward bound and sailing. Having travelled to South Africa to as an instructor, AJ decided to go walk about and found himself back in Gods land some 7 months later, travelling from South Africa to Wales overland covering a whopping 18,000 miles through Africa, Middle East and Central Europe!

Having worn out his boots AJ then stayed on the water. As well as a Yachtmaster Ocean Instructor with the RYA he is also an Inspector for ISAF for recognized accreditation and Offshore Safety.
