Andrew has been a Registered Trustee in Bankruptcy for over a decade, with 25 years’ combined experience in personal and corporate insolvency. He’s the principal trustee of Aravanis. He’s also been a member of CPA Australia since 2003. An insolvency industry refugee: Andrew began his career in insolvency as a Senior Assistant Official Receiver at the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA). After 7 years, he became a senior accountant before moving into a management position for a corporate insolvency firm. Here he worked on the administration of both corporate and personal insolvency matters before joining Fox Symes & Associates as their Operations Manager. Andrew held this (as well as various other titles) for 5 years before successfully registering as a Trustee and forming Aravanis Insolvency Pty Ltd as a division of the FSA Group Ltd in 2005. The man with a plan: Since then, Andrew’s been at the forefront of Aravanis’ growth. The firm now employs over 35 staff, including 2 additional registered trustees. While Andrew has administered more than 3,500 personal insolvency matters. With extensive experience in all areas of corporate and personal insolvency administrations, including those with AFSA, he’s one of the industry’s most widely respected trustees. A doggies man: Andrew is a huge tennis fan and, although in the minority at Aravanis, a dedicated Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs supporter. He’s an active member of the Rotary Club of Strathfield, and also enjoys the occasional ‘5-mile walk punctuated with disappointment’ (otherwise known as golf).
