Executive Management Team
Andrew is a Director at WMB Childcare Ltd, a company that helps parents and guardians lay a solid foundation for their children in their early years. He currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the company. He is responsible for setting strategy, company culture, building and leading the senior executive team and channelling the direction in which the company is headed. He is a serial entrepreneur, straight talking mentor, empathetic counsellor, a life coach and Ziglar certified trainer.
Andrew is not the typical CEO you are used to. He is well known to all the children in all the settings that he has been entrusted to serve and the passion to see them become exemplary and successful society leaders of tomorrow is his driving force. He is an ardent believer that leadership is servanthood and he shows this by serving both parents, staff and children. As a young teenager, Andrew has a natural ability to engage visiting children to their home and settle them even if he is meeting them for the first time. It was a gift that his mum observed in him and quickly made him aware of.
In 2003 whilst studying in his one bed flat in Bowler Street, the words that probably opened the door was fired into his spirit.
He became a registered childminder alongside his wife and the childminding business was graded outstanding by OFSTED.
He first became interested and involved in leadership and management as a young man who from high school days was saddled with the responsibility of ensuring the process of harvesting and storage of all the farm produce from his father’s large agricultural plantation run smoothly. It was there he cut his teeth in administration, management and leadership.
From earning £3.50 an hour in 2002 working in a shop, Andrew presently leads a staff team of 55 who rely heavily on his visionary and altruistic leadership to become who they have been destined to become. Andrew believes that as a leader you must support people to discover themselves and give room for people to thrive and become significant in their area of calling.
When he's not working on the business, Andrew serves as a part time Pastor at Winners Chapel International Manchester, an arm of the Living Faith Worldwide under the spiritual leadership of his mentor Dr David Oyedepo. Andrew likes writing articles in his spare time and sends it to people on his mailing list for their edification and encouragement. He has been known to spend a large amount of his time reading his favourite all-time best seller, the bible.
Andrew is an advocate for both formal and informal learning. He believes in continuous professional and personal development and has done several CPD courses in Programme and Project Management, Business Change Management and GIS and Social Data Management from the Cranfield University. He has an honours degree in Agricultural Technology. He attended briefly University of Central England for a Masters in Environmental Pollution Control. He has a Masters Level Advanced Manager Training in Working with the Third Sector. He is currently studying towards a Masters in Leadership and Management.
Andrew is married and has two well behaved and excellent children.
