Andrew has been with Scottish Agronomy from the very beginning – 1985 – and took over as Managing Director in 2006 from the company founder Huw Phillips. As well as being heavily involved in the advisory side of the business, he enjoys regular contact with the many commercial clients that Scottish Agronomy have gained over the years. He is a member of the AHDB Barley and Oats committee and the Scottish Variety Consultative committee.
Away from the business he is a keen rugby fan and plays the occasional bad-tempered game of golf. Favourite places include Luskentyre beach on Harris – the Caribbean without the temperatures! He loves ‘proper’ winter. The best advice he’s ever been given is “get your tackle in on the stand-off early”.
