When not at work
Andrew has two children and with what spare time he has he enjoys fly fishing (unsuccessfully), playing golf (badly), and wasting occasional Saturday afternoons playing cricket (disastrously)! He is also an eternally optimistic, but regularly disappointed, supporter of Middlesbrough Football Club.
Andrew served as President of the York & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry between 2004 and 2006 and is currently Chairman of the Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber.
