About Andrew

I am finishing up my MBA in just under a month, and am available to begin work around the beginning of October. My experience includes 4 years as the General Manager for Bike Retail Group, trading as Bike Barn. In this role I was responsible for sales, marketing execution, brand, operations and strategy. Since my time at Bike Barn I have been studying towards a Masters of Business Administration, specializing in International Business. Since October 2016 I have also held the role of National Operations Manager for Hireace, a vehicle rental company, where i finished in August to finish off my MBA. What interests me is leading and developing teams to grow market share and increase profitability for companies. My career has primarily been based in the retail and service trade (B2B and B2C), with a focus on sales, strategy, marketing and retail at a management level. I am now looking to use the skills I have gained, alongside my recent MBA work to build my career. I have worked at all levels of the sales and retail profession, from being a Store Manager, to a front line Sales Representative, Area Manager, General Manager and most recently National Operations Manager.
