Andrew's PhD thesis analysed how three large UK retailers managed the performance of their business over time and highlighted both the formal and informal practices adopted. The analysis was used to reflect on how modern, complex organisations can meet their strategic objectives and improve their performance both in the short and long term.
Andrew held a number of senior positions in large multi-national retail organisations both in the UK and overseas before completing his PhD and continuing his career in academia.
Andrew is a Chartered Accountant and during his time in industry, he was responsible for helping the businesses drive the performance of their operating units both in the short term and, through strategy, the long term.
In the classroom, he uses real life examples drawing on his industry experience to bring application of theory to life and highlight the practical issues students will face as they apply their learning to real problems, whether that is working with Senior Leadership Teams to develop strategy or regional teams to improve their financial performance.
