2016 Winner & Finalists for the Tenth Scholarship
Winner, Tenth Cranfield Australian Alumni Scholarship
After completing high school in Queensland, Andrew enlisted in the Australian Army where he trained as an Electronic Warfare Linguist and was allocated to the Defence Signals Directorate in Canberra.
Andrew later deployed as a Tetum linguist to Timor Leste on Peace Keeping operations, where he was used extensively by the United Nations on Medical hearts and minds missions to some of the most remote parts of the country. This deployment served as valuable preparation for the following years of service Andrew was to render in Afghanistan as part of the Special Operations Task Group. During this Time Andrew gained valuable experience as a leader and mentor to the local indigenous forces.
After 10 years’ service Andrew transitioned from the ADF to Schlumberger, an oilfield services company, where he provided technical drilling services on one of Australia’s largest and most complex offshore gas drilling campaigns.
Andrew is excited at the opportunity to attend the world class MBA at Cranfield, where he can develop his business and managerial skills. He aims to work with the government and senior business leaders in addressing the complex issues faced by veterans making the transition from the ADF to fulfilling civilian careers.
Andrew will be making the move to Cranfield with his wife Caris and three children, Emily, Ella and William.
Finalist. Awarded a 50th Anniversary Scholarship by Cranfield School of Management
