Andy is a CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy) qualified accountant, along with being a PRINCE2 (PRojects In Controlled Environments) practitioner.
He possesses over twenty 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.
