Engagement Manager

Andrew joined Proudfoot in 2014. He is an adventurous person who loves facing different challenges, traveling different places, and meeting people from different cultures or backgrounds. Helping companies solve their problems provides a strong sense of accomplishment for Andrew. For example, a client planned to close down a plant because of the profit loss, which meant hundreds of people would lose their job. Before the client completely gave up on this plant, they decided to hire Proudfoot to give it one more shot. Now, that plant has evolved into one of the most profitable plants in the region.
