Andrew is a very safe pair of hands. He is extremely knowledgeable, brings a lot to the party especially in the way he keeps everyone on their toes – where that is a good thing – particularly in challenging everyone to ensure project work is on schedule and governance is up to speed. Our intention was to improve the external reputation of the board, plus add experience and expertise. That has more than happened and Andrew is a key part of that.
