He brings extensive knowledge and experience to the position, having led complex and high-profile investigations for Fortune 500 companies throughout his career. Andrew also has significant experience working alongside international law firms and reporting to regulators and law enforcement agencies on a wide range of issues pertaining to fraud and corruption.
Andrew is noted for his experience in helping businesses lead on their “integrity agenda” by bolstering governance and transparency through more proactive approaches to identifying and mitigating risk.

“Businesses and governments come to EY when they face critical issues including regulatory enquiries and cyber-attacks to access the globally integrated advice and client-centric approach we can provide through the multidisciplinary EY network. With his strong track record, Andrew will provide valuable strategic leadership as we transform and grow our services through leading-edge technology to respond to the needs of clients facing a changing geopolitical landscape and complex regulatory environment. I look forward to working closely with Andrew and his team to continue FIDS’ success.”
Andrew says: “Businesses are under increased scrutiny to demonstrate transparency and accountability as the fight against fraud, bribery and corruption intensifies. It is a privilege to lead EY Global FIDS at this time. My focus is on working with our international team of forensic accountants, compliance and technology professionals to support clients across multiple industry sectors and geographic regions to address the complex financial and reputational risks they are facing.”
