Skills & Experience
Andrew has a wealth of experience in the built environment sector, both in construction and facilities management; and, for 14 years he ran his own SME servicing project delivery and maintenance of building automation and monitoring systems. Seeking to pursue IoT, more recently Andrew’s career led him to an Associate Director position at Hoare Lea LLP, specifically within their Intelligent Building Group.

During this time, he has interacted with developers, designers, operators, and end clients, in creating value definition for digital solutions; Andrew also designed IoT role outs coordinating with multiple client stakeholder groups across multiple market sectors.
The mutual fit for our business and Andrew was perfect. ICONICS, seeking to grow significantly in the market sector of intelligent buildings, and Andrew seeking to flip back from the consulting arena (man day sales) to a software solution company leading in the market space of digital assets. Andrew sees the opportunity of this market space as more than ‘significant’ with construction and facilities management, being laggards in the Gartner indexing of digitisation.
“The opportunity for software solutions and sales in this market space is like eating ripe fruit– the timing is perfect, But to make it better, we are stood in the middle of an orchard filled with fruit! ICONICS were able to give me the opportunity to join a mature company, one filled with expertise, case studies, and experience. A willingness to reshape its offering to the market opportunity. And a professionalism and agility that is unique."
