Andrew and I connected through a professional networking group for retail strategy leaders. I quickly recognized Andrew’s intellect and enjoyed his unique perspective. He is well-read, articulate and fantastic thought partner, both generous with his time and genuine in his intentions; I regularly seek his counsel and feel fortunate to call him a friend. Beyond his professional acumen, I am in awe of Andrew’s relentless focus and dedication to his ongoing self-improvement, it’s an inspiration.

I worked with Andrew during my time with American Signature, Inc. He is a talented thought leader who is constantly focused on ways to address various business challenges & interests. I am particular impressed with Andrew’s consumption of knowledge and information. He is a voracious reader who subscribes to the philosophy that leaders are readers. The result of his hard work and dedication to his craft: Andrew knows how to deliver meaningful business & customer insights. I hope our paths cross again.
