Andy Riddle - Managing Director

Andy possesses over fifteen years of experience, working within the field around managing vulnerable client’s funds/assets. Ten of those were spent advising numerous local authorities throughout the UK on these services, while 2011 saw him set up his own organisation – Professional Deputies. While doing this he was also offered the opportunity to build a private client department for a small law firm. During this period of a year and a half, he learnt a great deal about how a private client practice should be run – the lessons of which he has subsequently taken back to Professional Deputies for the benefit of all.

Someone who has a healthy passion for the Adult Social Care sector, and who believes strongly in the rights of those who are suffering from some form of mental incapacity.

Andy is also the owner of the ‘Managing the Financial & Legal Affairs of Vulnerable Adults’ group on LinkedIn.

In his spare time Andy enjoys travelling, keeping fit, music, films, cooking, reading and trying to master his Spanish with his partner and daughter Nerea.
