Andrew sees himself as a change agent — not just for the clients he supports — but for the missions they aspire to deliver. His measure of success extends beyond the bottom line to the positive impact brought to the world through his clients’ success.

The space industry is at a pivotal inflection point, teeming with opportunity yet fraught with uncertainty. To succeed, industry leaders must devise effective strategies and processes to address the growing intersection of national security, civil, and commercial space applications

Prior to joining Oliver Wyman, Andrew was a leader in Avascent’s space practice where he directed its space engagements and served as editor for the Apogee space publication. He authored numerous white papers on topics ranging from space SPAC valuations and in-flight connectivity business models, to government space acquisition strategies, and National Security Space spending.

Andrew holds a BA from Northwestern University in Economics and Mathematics and completed the certificate program in Financial Economics from the Kellogg School of Management.

When not engaging with clients, Andrew is fully involved in the chaos at home with his wife and five children. Together they love exploring the outdoors, whether it’s cycling in nearby Sligo Creek, skiing in Utah’s Wasatch mountains, or hiking in Shenandoah National Park. Andrew also serves on the board of The Yeshiva of Greater Washington, where he applies his experience building successful companies to building successful young adults.
