Manager, Capital & Finance
Andrew joined Taurus at the start of 2017 having arrived back to his home town of Christchurch after twelve years working in the banking sector in UK and Australia – he brings a lot of experience in business development and relationship management to his role of growing Taurus Group's Capital and Finance business.
He spent seven years in London during the pre and post GFC era where he held Client Management and Sales roles at HSBC, Bank of America, and Allied Irish Bank. In 2013, Andrew and his family moved one step closer to home, and settled in Melbourne, taking up the role of Relationship Director in Westpac's Public Sector Banking Team.
Throughout his career, Andrew's passion has always been to listen intently to his clients' requirements in order to create sustainable financial solutions. Andrew has been fortunate to have worked across a wide array of product areas such as Loans and Syndications, Asset Finance, Debt Capital Markets, Financial Markets, Trade Finance, Investment Management and Transaction Banking.
Andrew grew up in Christchurch, graduated from Otago University with a double degree (BCom, BPhEd) and left in 2002 to teach English in South Korea, before moving to England. While in London, he achieved post graduate certificates in Treasury Management, Derivatives and Regulations from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment. He is also a member of the New Zealand Property Council.
Andrew is excited to be back and sees Christchurch as a reviving City with enormous potential and spirit, and very different to when he left. Outside work he's enjoying time with his growing family. He's also a keen sportsman, has completed a marathon and a triathlon and is a self-confessed "golf tragic". In the spare time he has left, Andrew keeps an eye on global markets, economics and geo-politics.
