From Small Town to Successful Entrepreneur.
Andrew grew up in Port Alberni, British Columbia (born in Vancouver) with his loving parents and three siblings. His love of playing hockey has followed him throughout his life; he is still waiting for his call from the Canucks.
At a young age Andrew's entrepreneurial spirit was discovered. In elementary school, he cut lawns for his neighbours and made dream catchers which were sold at his uncle's office. While attending university, he successfully ran an awning cleaning business.
Andrew is a graduate of The University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Commerce in International Business. Upon university graduation Andrew went to work in Paris for a year at BNP Paribas. After coming back home, his experience helped launch his career in the financial services industry, working at Global Securities and Canadian Western Bank. He continued his passion working at Goepel McDermid in 1998 which was later acquired by Raymond James in 1999. Andrew had humble beginnings as a financial advisor. He started with no clients or assets under management. Over the last 18 years, he has built a successful business as a top advisor in Canada with his associates in Vancouver, BC. In February of 2018, Andrew moved his financial advisory team the Cash Management Group to Canaccord Genuity. As one of Canada's top advisory teams with $2.5B in AUM Andrew is the driving force behind his team of 14 associates.
