Andy started his accounting career in 1975 at KPMG (previously Peat Marwick & Mitchell) and after a successful career there he moved his employment to Geelong where he headed up the Audit Division of Davidsons.
Andy then took the brave step of leaving his secure job and setting out to establish a new accounting practice with his friend Peter Landers in 1982. This was indeed a brave (or stupid) move as neither had any clients at that time.
Along the way they joined forces with Richard Bull and established the Practice LBW Chartered Accountants.
Since then the accounting practice has blossomed from the smallest Practice in the world to the 74th largest in Australia according to the Business Review Weekly and the largest locally owned accounting practice in Geelong.
Not only was Andy a key player in the establishment of LBW Chartered Accountants and a well respected and accomplished accountant in his own name, he has also established a personal reputation in the Geelong community as well where he was the treasurer and then president of the Newtown & Chilwell Football & Netball Club Inc. for many years, president of Football Geelong for many years and donated his personal time to many other charitable and community organisations.
Andy and his lovely wife Lynne are the proud parents of 4 children Luke, Elise, Dion and Monique.
Andy & Lynne have embarked on their European holiday of a lifetime together and all the partners and staff at LBW wish them an enjoyable and memorable time.
He will be missed for his deeply caring personality, his professionalism and strength of character but mostly for his incredible loyalty.
