Andy graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 1986 with BA (Hons) in business administration, majoring in marketing.
He joined the motor industry from university, starting with Land Rover in fleet sales and culminating in 2000 as UK sales director.
That led to a change to the retail side of the business when he joined Lookers, initially running its substantial operations in Northern Ireland before joining the board after 18 months.
A few years as operations director lead to him becoming managing director, then COO and, in 2014, being appointed as CEO.
Andy is married to Fiona and has two children – Shona and Scott. His interests away from work are football and golf (not good!) along with socialising with friends and family.
