Andrew reports to Michelle Frymire, EVP and CFO at CWT.

“Andrew’s extensive experience in global procurement and strategic sourcing—having come up from a core finance function before moving to strategic sourcing—have given him a holistic view and understanding of how negotiated outcomes impact performance of the company,” Frymire said. “His new role as CPO very much aligns with CWT’s 3.0 strategy, including the transformation of the procurement function into a world-class business partner to improve competitiveness by driving efficiencies across the indirect supply base.”

Prior to joining CWT, Andrew served as senior vice president at First Data, where he helped lead the full transformation of its global strategic sourcing function.

Andrew first worked in the travel industry a decade ago with Delta Air Lines where he started in corporate finance before heading over to the airline’s supply chain management organization, which worked to maximize quality, delivery and cost competitiveness across its supply chain.

At CWT, Andrew is charged with taking business partnership and sourcing and procurement performance to the next level, while overseeing the global indirect portfolio of third party purchases, as well as managing CWT’s global footprint of facilities.

Andrew graduated with a BBA from the University of Georgia and earned his MBA from the Instituto de Empresa in Madrid.
