Grant Thornton

Andrew is an Associate Director with Grant Thornton Australia Limited, he specialises in providing commercial and strategic advice to the middle market. He is also the head of the Queensland Technology and Media industry group.

Prior to joining Grant Thornton, Andrew spent six years as an entrepreneur within the mining and technology industries working in Colombia, South America and Senegal, West Africa. Within these jurisdictions he established and developed businesses which lead to multiple company listings on the Australian and Canadian Stock Exchanges.

Through his experiences (particularly in developing nations) he has been exposed to the extreme inequality that exists in our world. The selfless work that Women’s Legal Services (WLS) does to support those in need has motivated Andrew to contribute to what will be a very fun event and help WLS to continue to positively influence our community.
