As a former AFL champion Andy set out to create a ‘life’ after football and became a qualified financial planner. He has developed a niche market specialising in succession planning helping businesses and families transfer and/or exit their business at top market value.
Andy talks about why good businesses have disappeared needlessly simply from a lack of planning.
Andy is the co-founder and director of Time Advice Pty Ltd - a firm that specialises in Succession Consulting, helping businesses and families transfer and/or exit their business at top market value.
He has created a burgeoning niche market attracting businesses from a wide range of industries and travels nationally spreading the message.
Andy knows that way too many business owners leave the business succession discussion until it is too late. That is, an unwanted exit occurs and then the business value might be either under threat, or even worse, reduced to zero.
The opposite situation sees organised, proactive business owners working effectively towards their ultimate exit and maximising the value they have spent a lifetime of effort building.
With over 20 years’ experience in marketing, sales, business development, media services, public relations and financial planning, Andy was born and bred in Melbourne.
He followed the footsteps of his late father Trevor who played for the Richmond Tigers, becoming a champion AFL footballer with the Hawthorn Hawks playing 89 games including the 1991 premiership and then 51 games for the Brisbane Lions.
Andy is a seasoned public speaker and media presenter having worked in radio and television for many years.
He has been a business owner since 1996 and loves interacting with other like-minded business owners to help them make the most of what will probably be their biggest asset - their business.
He is totally committed to helping people achieve their goals in their chosen fields and has some fascinating insights from a range of experiences which he shares willingly with interested audiences.
Andy is a Business graduate from the David Syme Business School at Monash University with a Marketing major and has also completed the Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning).
Andy travels from Melbourne.
