Andrew began his career in the RAAF in 1983, completing a Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering Degree at RMIT before undertaking a career as an engineering officer. Andrew has also completed a Master of Business Administration from the University of New England and is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society.

During his RAAF career he had postings across Australia and the United States covering maintenance, engineering, logistics, acquisition and personnel. Andrew left the RAAF in 1999 to establish a new Defence maintenance company that is now known as TAE Aerospace; a global aerospace company, employing over 400 staff and supporting both the Defence and Commercial aviation markets throughout Asia-Pacific and the United States with turbine engine and component maintenance services for fighter aircraft through to aerial agricultural and fire bombing aircraft and the M1 Abrams tank.

In 2022 TAE Aerospace became a member of ASDAM, joining Marand Precision Engineering, Rosebank Engineering and Levett Engineering, and Andrew was appointed CEO of the ASDAM Group. ASDAM provides end to end capabilities for Defence, Industrial and Commercial customers across engineering, manufacturing, assembly and sustainment. With operations in over 20 locations across Australia and the United States, ASDAM employs approximately 1,000 staff and is Australia’s largest manufacturing and sustainment supplier to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program.
