Andy thoughtfully applied lessons from prior industry experience in unique ways based on our specific business. By relentlessly focusing on differentiating our business model, he helped us integrate a wide range of relevant issues into a cohesive strategy. Andy engaged at a strategic and detailed level as the situation warranted. Andy leveraged his prior experience to help us see the buyer’s perspective, which contributed immensely in preparing the business for a very successful sale to a strategic buyer. I enjoyed working with Andy as a Board member, advisor and mentor.
