Andrew graduated from Oxford University in 1997 with an honours degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
In bringing PRA to the table, Cavendish identified a buyer who recognised the value created by the team during the period of our ownership and who has an exciting vision for the future of the business. The Cavendish team helped ensure the price paid by PRA reflects this and that the deal completed in a timely fashion. It represents a very successful investment for JZI.Martin Wright, partner at JZI (Mackenzie Hall)
