It has been busy few months for us at Andrew Ingredients! There are a few exciting changes. Here is the run down...

Tim Andrew now Chairman


Tim is now Andrew Ingredients' Chairman. As many of you will know, Tim's father Bill Andrew set up the company in 1945. Tim joined in 1967 to "help out in the store for a few weeks". Since then he has experienced most roles withing the business including deliveries, administration, sales and purchasing. Tim became Managing Director in 1998 and has very successfully steered the company through 3 major relocations and expansions, development of our distribution area to include all-Ireland and Scotland and has helped overcome all of the challenges these milestones presented. Tim will still be actively involved in the business and has passed his Managing Director role to the very capable hands of John Graham.

Tim has passed the Managing Director reins over to John Graham.  John joined the company as Commercial Director in April 2014, following the late Alan Waugh's retirement. Prior to this, John held the position of Financial Director at Deli Lites. He has also worked for KMPG and for a number of years was part of Grant Thornton's corporate finance team.

Since joining the Andrew Ingredients team, John has been key in driving the company's growth and his appointment as Managing Director is no doubt the beginning of exciting and prosperous times ahead for the business.
