Andrew became a trustee of the Baring Foundation in October 2010.  He also sits on Lord Hodgson’s taskforce making recommendations to government about cutting red-tape in the voluntary sector. 

Andrew has extensive experience of working with the charity sector. He was a senior executive with ActionAid (1986-1991) and Barnardo's (1992-1995) before moving to the BBC in 1995, where he was chief operating officer of BBC World Service.

He is the author of The Governance and Management of Charities, and was chair of the Charity Awards judging panel in 2011, having also served as a judge in the early years of the Awards.
