Senior Commodity Advisor
Andrew joined Market Check in September 2010, in preparation for one of Australia’s largest ever expected grain harvests. Andrew works in Grower Services, dedicated to ensuring growers receive the best advice in regard to their position and obligations.
Andrew completed his studies for a Bachelor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Sydney, where he majored in Agricultural Economics and Marketing. During this time he became engrossed with the impact of growing populations, food security and crop technologies.
Prior to starting at Market Check, Andrew spent several months working on a property in Walcha, NSW, where the focus of operations was on fat lambs and cattle. In particular Andrew learned about the importance of soil science, helping to ensure sustainable farming practices for years to come.
Prior to this, Andrew worked with a boutique financial advisory firm assisting clients with their portfolios and risk management strategies. Andrew also forms part of Market Check’s global research platform analysing Australia’s domestic markets.
