Andrew is the social media manager and part of the communications team at Barnsley-based financial management company Lifetime.
Prior to Andrew joining Lifetime early in 2013, he was the sports editor of the Barnsley Chronicle newspaper and has also worked for the Press Association. He has over 25 years experience in journalism.
Says Andrew: “I love words, I love stories, so being a journalist was a dream realised.
“And now, being responsible for the social media, website and communications at Lifetime, I can also embrace the new media, the new technology that has developed rapidly over the last few years. The ability to communicate through the likes of Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedin and Instagram, and to develop and fully utilise websites, has opened up exciting new avenues!
“It is so much fun working at Lifetime, sharing a vision, ideas, great stories! We are raising the profile of our big-hearted company through many different forms.
“We are increasing our ties with the local community too, with our relationship with the local hospice and our tie-up with Horizon Community College to drive forward the BBIS venture. Long may that continue!”
