Andrew has previously worked for Allsop & Co, Donaldsons, The Valuation Office Agency, Cushman & Wakefield Healy & Baker and Bayram Vickery Meech prior to joining DWD. During that time he has managed compulsory purchase compensation claims, commercial mortgage valuations, valuations for stock market financial results and portfolio performance, rent reviews, lease renewals and market appraisals for private and auction sale principally in London and the South East.
