Andy has a detailed understanding of contemporary Project Management techniques and standards, and is fastidious in his application of Quality Control and Assurance methods. He is prepared to tackle complex problems head on, and is a good communicator, fair and inclusive in his management style and prepared to mentor his team members to progress their development.
I would not hesitate to work with Andy again in the future should the opportunity arise.

Managing Consulatant, Consulting Ethic
I recommend Andy highly for his personal qualities of integrity, commitment and tenacity.
Andy has the rare capacity to be (or where necessary to rapidly become) a subject matter expert in the required domain as well as at the same time being the programme leader.
During my time advising First Group, Andy was the lynchpin for their ticketing programme. The programme developed and rolled out direct on-vehicle contactless payments for travel.
