Andrew has been supporting the strategic growth and development of small and nonprofit businesses for over 25 years. As PLJV’s Business Director, Andrew manages all contracting, finance, and HR functions of the business, and supports the delivery of conservation programs through funding and partnership development, and administration of the PLJV ConocoPhillips Capacity Grants program.
Supporting mission-driven work for most of his career has given Andrew unique opportunities to partner with boards and staff on optimizing the structure of lean organizations, coordinating foundational efforts on capital campaigns and inclusiveness, and investing in recruitment and retention efforts to attract and keep top talent. He feels that PLJV may be the best job of his career to date because it blends his love of orderliness with big picture goals for our shared landscape that are both challenging and engaging.
Andrew’s personal mission is centered around animal welfare — helping the hardest to adopt shelter animals find forever homes, and advocating for increased spay and neuter surgeries to help address pet overpopulation. He credits his passion for conservation to his mother, who spent much of her career as an educator and field guide sharing knowledge about birds, local wildlife, clean water, and environmental science.
Andrew joined the PLJV team in 2015.
