This breadth of exposure enables him to advise and work with both clients and candidates to holistically shape relevant and effective solutions to meet their needs. Andrew’s clients range from small, VC-backed start-ups to PE-owned growth-stage investments and on to some of the world’s largest organizations, spanning all sectors and multiple international geographies. A serial networker and problem-solver, he is well-respected for his responsiveness, honesty, and integrity.

Prior to joining ZRG in 2023, Andrew spent six and a half years as the Group Client Partner of Norman Broadbent, the oldest UK-based board and executive search firm.
