“Andy's approach to business demands a high level of energy and passion not only from himself, but also for those who work for him. He has a strong merchant vision which allows him to set direction for the entire company to follow. Once a direction has been set he works tirelessly to help all of his team acheive their goals. I have grown to not only respect Andy as a leader, but also as a person who cares for his employees and their well being.

“During the time that our companies did business together, I had the opportunity to get to know Andy and observe his style of work and the manner in which he managed, led and made decisions. I developed a high level of respect for his business acumen, and honored the integrity with which he conducted himself. In all of his dealings with me he conducted himself in a manner that he and his company could take pride. Andy demonstrated creativity in his marketing approach, listened to the input of others, conducted proper analysis and then made informed decisions. I am pleased to provide this recommendation, and would proudly work with, for or alongside him again in the future.”
