Andrew’s first-hand experience of the digital world and the power of social media networks spans three decades, and can be traced back to the early 1980’s when he found himself online via bulletin board and email.

Prior to his current role at IBM, he was head of international client strategy for Visible Technologies, owned by WPP.
