Chief Executive, Strata
When Andrew became chief executive of Strata in 2014 he had a vision for the brand, to become a housebuilder that would differentiate through design and technology, providing an experience for customers that would empower them through customisation.
Challenging the restrictions of a traditional industry, just four years on and Strata is more likened to a lifestyle brand than a developer with house types that appeal to customers with an appreciation for design, attention to detail, quality and style.
In the last year, Andrew has led a complete refurbishment of the head office in Doncaster to cultivate an environment where there is less segregation and more collaboration that allows for technology, data, ideas and passion to flow.
Live, learn and dream have become key themes for Strata as the team of 200 people work on its 16 developments throughout Yorkshire and the Midlands.
Believing that you can be successful and kind, each year Andrew brings together the Strata family which includes employees, family, friends and suppliers to get involved with events and raise money for a chosen charity.
Since the charity of the year initiative was introduced, almost £500,000 has been donated to causes that have a positive impact on individuals, families and communities.
