Andrew’s insights to our project eliminated many common issues because we used his expertise to find the correct solution first. He assisted in connecting us with other partners who were equally
professional and effective. The impact was recognition for creativity and cost savings during the pre-opening phase. Andrew is seasoned and instantly sees the big picture and offers an array of ideas, opportunities and suggestions to move the needle. He is honest, candid and also extremely fun, keeping the most serious issues light enough to deal with. He tackles the tough questions in professional way without judgment or bias.
