KordaMentha’s commitment to clients and high standard of Forensic expertise first attracted Andrew, who has over 22 years' experience in the provision of financial advice, valuation and forensic accounting to join KordaMentha.

During his career Andrew has worked for Arthur Andersen in Brisbane, Atlanta (USA) and Sydney and Ferrier Hodgson in Sydney. He joined KordaMentha in January 2010, where he leads the Sydney Forensic practice.

Andrew was the National Chair of the Forensic Accounting Special Interest Group 'FASIG' of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, the national representative body for the forensic accounting profession, from 2005 to 2008.
