Andrew joined Routeco in 1999 and gained significant work experience working as part of a successful UK sales team. He also helped manage and promote a variety of control and automation and IT related products as well as looking after a select number of clients of these products. Andrew spent time working in several branches around the UK and also developed many useful strategic ideas whilst studying Business Studies at the local Open University which helped improve his communication skills and boost his confidence in the workplace.
Andrew started his own Commercial property company called AW James in 2003 and this led to him managing the development of a business Park in Peterborough in 2006, and a Retail Park in 2010 as well as him visiting potential sites of interest and investing in a variety of properties in the UK. Most recently Andrew has become involved as a Director of two other property companies which have now been amalgamated and will be known as AW James (currently operating as Routeco Properties Ltd).
Andrew is married and with three boys and enjoys spending spare time playing the occasional game of cricket, golf and tennis. Andrew recently took part in two half marathons for charity and is hoping to do more fund raising activity in future.
