Andy has been Director of Art UK since 2003, responsible for the management and strategic direction of the organisation and playing a major role in fundraising.

He was instrumental in transforming the organisation from being a publisher of hardcopy catalogues of oil paintings in public ownership to being the digital platform of the nation’s art collection, developing partnerships with the BBC, Oxford University Press, the Paul Mellon Centre, the Guardian and most recently Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Andy sits on the AHRC’s ‘Towards a National Collection’ Steering Committee and until recently he was a Trustee of the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association.

Previously he worked at investment bank Robert Fleming, subsequently part of JP Morgan Chase, in various equity research and management roles in London and Tokyo.
