Andy is Managing Partner of Newgate Engage. He combines media relations expertise with a hard-nosed political background. Andy has been a Council, GLA and a former Parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats and previously worked in Parliament as a researcher for Don Foster MP. Andy remains politically active.
Andy has led our teams dealing with some of the UK’s most significant property developments including Ebbsfleet Valley, Lodge Hill for Land Securities and now leads on communications for London Paramount in Kent.
With comprehensive experience in both immediate and strategic land promotion, he gets under the skin of projects, building relationships with the local media, communities and politicians, working towards the best outcomes. This has included many of the volume housebuilders, smaller, bespoke developers like City & Country Group and even the Cabinet Office.
He also works closely with a range of clients providing corporate reputation management and crisis communications support; these have included both Wasps and Bath Rugby (not at the same time he hastens to add)!
