Andrea joined SUMS Consulting in 2000 following a varied and successful twelve years with BOC. After graduating from Imperial College, London in Chemical Engineering Andrea used her engineering skills in a number of roles at BOC not only related to her engineering background but also in operations and in IT. She moved into a Programme Manager role (one of the first to undertake this role at BOC) and guided BOC through the Year 2000 project.
Andrea’s fascination for IT and her industrial experience have been applied at SUMS to enhanced system design and operational effectiveness. Andrea has provided IT health checks across the sector. She specialises in Timetabling, assisting Members with the challenges of timetabling their teaching activities effectively, and is developing our Space Management work. Andrea uses her Programme Management experience and skills to help universities take a holistic approach to the challenges they are facing. Andrea is a very keen gardener and has on one occasion been able to combine business with pleasure when offering advice to an institution not only about their real estate but also the botanical gardens!
