In 2009, Andy launched NextGen Global Resources, a staffing firm specializing in telecom, which sold to Kelly Services in 2019.Andy has advocated for advancing gender and diversity throughout his thirty-year career. During his time at both Glotel and NextGen, he mentored and replaced himself with a female CEO. In both firms, two-thirds of the senior leadership team were female with a significant focus on diversity both internally and externally. Today at Swoon, two-thirds of Swoon’s senior leadership team is female with a greater goal for Andy to replace himself with a female CEO in the next few years.
