Andrew has proven business transformation capability driven through a natural people orientation, coupled with strong business acumen. Andrew served as President and CEO of Kepner-Tregoe Inc. (KT), a Princeton based consulting and training firm, which specializes in business transformation programs through the use of rational process thinking ideas that enable companies to resolve complex strategic and operational issues through the applied use of systematic process.
Joining the business in Australia, he initially focused on his client’s operational improvement projects; to support international operations, Andrew took on a turn-around leadership challenge with KT’s Tokyo operation. Over two years, he successfully guided the business towards profitability, while gaining experience with the major consumer products companies in the region. Following Japan, Andrew relocated to Europe to take a leadership role guiding the firm’s complex European operation whilst evolving it toward an integrated, pan-European, business model.
In conjunction with driving the business towards improved profitability and increased team engagement, Andrew was active amongst the company’s strategic clients delivering strategy formulation and operation improvement projects. In late 2005, Andrew was appointed COO and relocated to North America to become CEO in 2006. Under Andrew’s stewardship, the executive team designed and implemented a forward-thinking strategy, which enabled the business to weather the 2008 global financial crisis and position it for future market growth. During this period, Andrew developed a keen interest in the field of effective leadership behavior.
In 2010, he left the business to pursue this passion, relocating to Italy to serve as an adjunct professor at CIMBA University, near Venice, while studying the evolving field of neuroscience as applied to leadership behavior. Bridging to a new challenge, Andrew was appointed as President and CEO of Forum Corporation, a Boston based training company specializing in Leadership Development, Sales Effectiveness and Customer Experience management, where he led a multi- disciplinary, global team of professionals, committed to adding value to their clients through proven strategies, ideas, and innovative delivery solutions.
