prison reformer and property developer
Andy was a student of St Paul’s School, London, and a graduate of Russian Studies at The University of Essex, including a year, during the Cold War, at Moscow State University. Andy has, to date, spent his professional life in UK residential property – as agent, developer, investor and asset manager, responsible, at its peak, for a portfolio of over 3500 properties with a vacant possession value today of c.£750 million. Today his main preoccupation is prison reform and how to change the prison world so that reoffending rates can come down. His other great loves, apart from his family, are dog-walking, warm weather, most things new, reading, critical thinking and speaking, many sports including, in particular, real tennis, and yes, he has to confess, Manchester United.
