Senior Advisor

Public affairs may not be a science but it is certainly amenable to rigorous 360-degree strategy, action and accountability. Acumen offers this.

With more than 40 years’ experience working in and with the EU institutions, Brussels think tanks and big tech, Andrew is able to tackle client problem-solving as a matrix, taking in all levels of the decision-making process, civil society and media. Prior to joining Acumen, Andrew was for nine years vice president of government relations for Samsung Electronics Europe and advisor to the president of the European Commission on single market and labour law. He has also been EC cabinet lead and EC spokesman for employment and social policy. Earlier in his career he was a member of cabinet of the European Commissioner for the EU budget and, over eight years, developed a specialisation in EU state aid disciplines and procedure.
