Andrew joined HETAS in 2009 with an engineering background in quality management. As our Head of Quality & Certification, Andrew works proactively across HETAS and Woodsure to ensure the schemes we offer to industry are appropriate and maintain compliance with our UKAS Certification Body status.

In 2016, Andrew also became a Director of Woodsure, using his knowledge and expertise to oversee the organisation’s strategic direction.
