Alter Ego – Brian the Dog from Family Guy
Andrew has been a member of the Accuteque family since 2011 and has spent a significant portion of his time working on client sites, where he concentrates on delivering the most business value for the least investment. Andrew approaches these engagements with an almost child-like curiosity, which he finds fosters his creative and innovative sides. Back in the office, he feels he is equally rewarded, as he feeds off the diverse range of colleagues who all bring different experiences and perspectives to the job – Andrew claims ‘they keep me energised and are a great source of peer support.’
One of Andrew’s biggest achievements at Accuteque to date has been his work in the insurance industry, on one of the organisation’s largest IT initiatives. A large Transformation Program, the brief was to replace the company’s core insurance underwriting system while simultaneously incorporating new functionality for document and work management. Its key dimensions involved 250 project personnel over a multi-year timescale, an investment of nearly $200M and a PCB chaired by the CEO. At the time Andrew joined the project, it had already run for over 2 years. It was under considerable time pressure due to the program missing key delivery targets, acknowledged immaturity in Agile Project delivery and the loss of key project resources and leadership.
Andrew was also a key player in the delivery and creation of centralised claims lodgement and fulfilment, coupled with document management and archive solution. This was a 2-year project that greatly enhanced the way claims were processed and vastly improved claim resolution for brokers. Andrew’s greatest strength has been his ability to excel and add value at Accuteque and client sites by focusing on the Change Management and people impacts of projects.
If Andrew could be any animal in the world, he would be a dog. As someone with an incredible sense of smell (believe us, he can smell the burgers cooking at Royal Stacks all the way from the office!), and being the completely loyal, faithful and friendly individual that he is, the only thing missing is the half-finished novel to tie it all together.
