Andrea is the founder of People Business. She is an experienced Human Resources professional, organisational development consultant, coach and facilitator. With a background of corporate senior roles and 25 years’ experience Andrea brings a wealth of experience and impact to her work with clients.
Andrea believes that enabling people is not a “soft option” for those that have the time and other resources to do so, but rather it is the most effective way of improving the performance of organisations so that they consistently deliver business objectives. Inspired people with a clear sense of what must be done can deliver extraordinary results.
Over the last 15 years Andrea has worked extensively within the Private Equity (PE) space carrying out projects with both PE firms and their portfolio companies that include: management due diligence, assessment of key individuals and leadership teams, Board development, Leadership team development, coaching CEO’s and other executive team members, reviewing and overhauling people strategies in portfolio companies to enable growth, hiring investors at all levels from analyst to Partner, hiring operating partners and other support roles, improving recruitment processes, establishing development and coaching options to support investors career development and Firm succession planning and developing investment teams.
Andrea uses her PE knowledge and experience to accelerate the pace of change implementing practices that work. She achieves a healthy mix of innovation and pragmatism (with a little humour for good measure), and is always focussed on delivering results.
