Before joining Sandton as a Senior Advisor, Andy ran Lloyds Banking Group's Mid Corporate Business Support operation across the North and Scotland.
Appointed at the height of the financial crisis in 2008, he and his teams assumed responsibility for some of the Bank's most challenging, complex, and sensitive positions. Previously, Andy led the Leveraged Finance team for Lloyds in the North, structuring debt in support of private equity backed management buy-outs, originating and transacting over £500m of deals personally. Before this, he spent the majority of his 34-year career in corporate relationship management, encompassing both SMEs in the Midlands and global corporates in the City. He pioneered a strategic advisory offering to a group of the Bank's mid corporate clients. He has extensive transactional, operational, and financial restructuring and performance improvement experience across a broad range of sectors and businesses. Based in York, Andy is well known to business communities across the North and is an active member of the Institute for Turnaround.
