Founder + Managing Director
Andy set up Born + Raised in 2010 after cutting his teeth for ten years at a couple of other Sheffield based agencies. Born + Raised was born out of the desire to do things properly, committed to unearthing genuine insight, driven by outstanding creative that genuinely added value, and dedicated to delivering all of this through service that exceeded expectations.
As founder and MD, Andy’s firmly at the helm, setting a course for our long term vision and steering the business strategically along with the senior management team. As an ex-account manager, he’s still actively involved in most client accounts and can’t help getting stuck into the odd project to tackle those tough business challenges we love being tasked to undertake.
The plan has always been to create a business that I’m proud to be part of, with a culture that leads to extraordinary achievements, and creative output that helps brands accomplish greatness.
Previous clients include First Direct, Thomas Cook, Disney, Sony Playstation and BBC. And a little known kids tv show called Underground Ernie where he got the chance to work with Gary Lineker and indie legends The Wonder Stuff.
He used to be a DJ and is the proud owner of a record collection of well over a thousand pieces of vinyl. He still aspires to achieve Superstar DJ status when he grows up.
