“It is always a great pleasure to work alongside Andrew as I have done at Red Hat for a number of years, specifically, but not limited to Storage opportunities. Andrew possesses strong sales acumen, is confident and very personable; his passionate approach and wonderful manner in front of clients helps lead the customer along the road to a sale. He can portray a compelling motivation to purchase supported by strong technical knowledge. Andrew really cares about the customer and his strong in-depth knowledge in his role of Business Development continues long after the initial sale – involving global business and technical leaders within Red Hat when required. A great and colourful presenter, and an outstanding ambassador for both Red Hat and OpenSource.


Kate Edwards

Strategic Account Executive, Red Hat

“I have had the opportunity to work closely with Andrew at Mesosphere and was immediately impressed. Andrew is passionate, execution oriented, and produces very high quality work. Mesosphere is an incredibly technical product, and as a result, before Andrew stepped in a lot of our product marketing read as release notes. From the beginning, Andrew did a great job bridging the gap between product and marketing to tell a more cohesive and complete story. Additionally, Andrew brings a lot of different skill-sets to the table since he has such a diverse work background. And because he has extensive experience in sales, Andrew can look at messaging and collateral with a critical eye–always thinking about how the AE sells and how we can improve our sales materials to compliment the selling motion. Finally, Andrew has an incredibly work ethic. He lives in Australia and our core team is in the US. Despite the time difference Andrew goes out of his way to be available during HQ work hours–which is something that not many remote folks from across the world do. I highly recommend Andrew!”

“Andrew came on board at D2iQ to help build out our Kubernetes messaging and Go To Market. He almost single handedly changed how we communicate business value for our Kubernetes product lines to customers. Andrew brought a level of customer sympathy and sales knowledge to our product marketing organization that was needed. As our Kubernetes strategy matured, Andrew helped the new executive team and us in Product roll out an entire line of new products under a different company name and branding. The transition, which is not easy given the size of D2iQ (350+ people) went so smoothly the launch date effectively felt like just another work day. Andrew was instrumental in that effort.



Chris Gaun

Product Manager, D2iQ

“It was a pleasure working with Andrew on launching D2iQ, the company formerly known as Mesosphere. Andrew brought significant rigor to our product marketing organization, focusing on the customer value perspective to help drive expanded ROI conversations with key prospects and clients around our distinctive competencies. Andrew’s mastery of all aspects of product marketing allowed him to fit nicely into our enablement processes focusing on multiple stages of the sales cycle and at multiple sales rep skill levels to improve our overall ability to deliver against client expectations.



James Hammons

Regional Vice President - Europe, Middle East & Africa, Mesosphere

Andrew brings a significant level of mature thinking to Product Marketing that goes beyond the traditionally siloed marketing specialist. With his keen understanding of the industry, the customer, their buying journey, and the entire sales and channel supply chain, he is able to build go to market strategies and execute tactics beyond simply producing a deck or whitepaper. Further, to ensure successful implementation and revenue results, Andrew works cross-functionally with those on the front line to make sure they understand how to best solve customer problems, provide a unique value proposition, and out maneuver the competition. Andrew is a 360-degree product marketing specialist who is an asset to any team.



Amy Benoit

Global Field Enablement, Learning & Development Manager, Pivotal

Andrew has been a breath of fresh air to D2iQ by leading an almost total reinvention of our messaging, framing it from the customer value perspective (instead of tech-driven, bottom-up), making it a cohesive story, developing the required persona-specific messaging and education, and making all of it truly professional, easy to follow and easy to communicate.



Ian Fraser

Technical Account Manager, D2iQ

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andrew over the last 5+ years and I’ve always been deeply impressed with his depth of knowledge across the storage and big data landscape. More importantly is his ability to communicate that knowledge and experience effectively across all levels of a customer’s business.



Steven Ellis

Principal Product Manager - APAC Office of Technology, Red Hat

“Andrew brought with him an impressive range of skills as an accomplished infrastructure design specialist and always lead by example with a strong focus on delivery and customer satisfaction. His ability to understand the business allowed him perform with autonomy when required. Andrew has a strong and broad technical knowledge with a great sense of purpose while participating in a dynamic team environment in a very challenging enterprise landscape. His positive outlook, customer driven attitude and extensive knowledge will be valuable assets to any organisation



Jakob Pretorius

Enterprise Architect, Queensland Health - Queensland Government

Andrew understands businesses; that is one of his major strengths. His vast experience in the IT industry allow him to apply his broad knowledge of enterprise architecture to an organisation in any vertical. And his ability to execute on fit-for-purpose solutions to business problems is second to none.

His skill set comprises many disciplines allowing him to understand and partake in many conversations: conversations with management and technical leads, respectively. Sometime the extent of his knowledge can be daunting!

He’s a guy that enjoys life (particularly food!), is always willing to help and teach others, and doesn’t back down from a challenge.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andrew – a team player and an asset to any company willing to embrace what he can offer.
