Head of Consultancy (Bristol)

Andy heads up our Bristol consultancy team. Beginning his career as a software developer, Andy has led software teams in a variety of organisations offering software products and professional services, introducing agile practices back when that was still novel! After 20 years in digital TV and broadcast, Andy decided it was time for a change, so crossed into technology consultancy, first at BJSS, then Scott Logic. Non-work passions include walking and climbing in mountains, and running over them for longer distances than is strictly sensible.
