Andrew is the Co-Founder and CEO of the FlyOver® group of visitor attractions. Andrew holds a law degree from UBC. Upon graduation, he clerked for the Supreme Court of BC and practised criminal law before launching his first venture in 1997, Maple Leaf GST Refund Service Ltd., modelled after the European tax-free shopping program. The business was scaled quickly to cities across Canada and sold after 5 years to Global Refund (now Global Blue), a multi-national based in Geneva, Switzerland.
In 2013, Andrew opened FlyOver Canada at Canada Place in Vancouver, BC with his longtime business partner, Stephen Geddes. FlyOver Canada became one of the most successful destination attractions in North America in very short order and was sold to Viad Corp (NYSE:VVI) in December 2016. In 2016 the pair expanded the concept and opened FlyOver America in Minneapolis, USA. Andrew continues to manage the FlyOver attractions and to seek new opportunities for the brand worldwide.
