Andrew joined DSG in 2003 after a career in Entrepreneurial Services with EY in Liverpool and Manchester. After initially focussing on audit he became more involved in advisory work dealing with owner managed and venture capital-backed companies. Andrew became a partner with DSG in 2005 developing a wide network in the Liverpool City Region, enjoying the freedom that an independent firm provides by having the time to build relationships with clients and understand their businesses and goals.
‘I focus on corporate finance within DSG assisting clients in either the acquisition or sale of businesses in addition to fundraising for expansion or to provide additional working capital. I also oversee the preparation of financial forecasts to help understand how much funding is required or whether a business is affordable’.
Andrew has helped a number of clients acquire businesses either through acquisition or management buy-out. He works with a large range of clients in helping them understand the financial performance of their business and how to improve it, providing a sounding board for them in order to achieve their goals; in addition to helping them with tax efficient strategies.
‘I lead approximately 40 people within the DSG Corporate and Business Accounts teams based out of the Liverpool office covering mainly the compliance needs of clients but also working with other Corporate partners in delivering solutions to clients, whether it be a cash flow forecast or a business acquisition’.
Andrew deals predominantly with owner-managed businesses who are good at what they do but don’t necessarily have the in-house finance expertise or experience to support themselves in key business decisions, he works across many industries including leisure, manufacturing, technology and service sector businesses including legal firms and medical and dental practices.
‘Over the next three years, I would like DSG to become the ‘go-to firm’ in the Liverpool City Region and North Wales for owner managed businesses seeking clear professional advice and I would like to see the expansion of DSG’s cloud offering to enhance the financial information available to clients, further enhancing our service delivery.
