Andrew is passionate about doing his part to make the world a better place.
The past twelve years he has worked in marketing departments for international development organizations. The first half of that time was learning from the largest charity in Canada, World Vision, where he was a part of $25M annual direct mail campaigns, oversaw their outbound telemarketing program and spearheaded their donor retention efforts.
The most recent half of his career has been spent as the Director of Marketing and Strategic Initiatives at Opportunity International Canada. Being a much smaller charity, it has allowed Andrew the ability to be innovative and entrepreneurial, setting up an internal creative agency to support staff across Canada with a wide variety of marketing needs.
He loves to connect with people and connect people together to make great things happen.
