Based in the London office, Andreas will be responsible for leading Deloitte’s hospitality and leisure practice in the UK and will help the broader leadership team to shape the firm’s strategy in the THL sector, as well as working with the firm’s global network of offices. He has extensive international experience in consultancy and M&A, including the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America.

His experience in advising clients includes many of the leading global brands and operators, private equity and hedge funds, property investors and developers, and overseas investment funds.
Prior to joining Deloitte, Andreas was the International Managing Director at Christie & Co where he had responsibility for 16 offices across Europe, the Middle East and China. In addition, he headed up the Consultancy service line across the firm. A graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, Andreas previously worked for both Arthur Andersen and Deloitte in the US and Europe and has operational hotel experience in the USA, Switzerland and Hong Kong.
Commenting on the appointment, Dominic Graham, head of THL at Deloitte in the UK, said: “It is excellent to have someone of Andreas’s calibre at the helm. Andreas brings a wealth of experience in and it is clear to see that his leadership will only benefit the rest of the team and our clients in this fast-growing industry.”
