Andrew is passionate about doing his part to make the world a better place.
The past 12 years he has worked in marketing departments for international development organizations. The first half of that time 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 at 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.
Andrew lives with his wife, Katrina, their two kids, Benjamin and Norah, and their black lab, Bear, in Stirling, Ontario.
Prior to co-founding Kasama, Katrina worked in administrative services for over 10 years both in the private and non-profit sectors.
For seven years, she was based in the Financial District in the Toronto’s Downtown Core, working for the commercial property management firm EmTwo Properties Inc. where she supported the President and General Manager. A few years beforehand, Katrina coordinated event bookings and residence facilities at Tyndale University.
Before she became the Domestic Engineer in her home, Katrina was also a blogger and a running coach. She loves connecting over a cup of coffee and/or a glass of red wine.
