Biography

With a passion for technology, Andrew has spent most of the last decade working in the digital automotive sector – as Director of Motors at Gumtree and Head of Motors at eBay.

When not obsessing about cars, he can typically be found bemoaning the fortunes of his beloved Plymouth Argyle, and making excuses for their sixth consecutive season in the Football League’s basement division.

Andrew’s participation has been made possible through Speakers for Schools partnership with the UK Automotive 30% Club and his school talks will include a focus on inspiring girls to consider opportunities in the automotive sector and encouraging all students to aim high.
