Director Mergers & Acquisitions Minneapolis


Andrew provides experienced M&A leadership, from strategy to diligence to planning to execution. He serves as an engagement lead for manufacturing and distribution transactions and specializes in technology transformation engagements related to ERP, CRM, and QMS. He has supported more than 100 transactions across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, distribution, and service companies.

He is particularly skilled in determining functional requirements and specifications for complex environments, and he backs that up with large-scale program and project management experience. This background means he can adeptly support clients across the full M&A lifecycle, from providing transaction advice to executing carve-outs and integrating operations following a merger. His current and past clients represent a wide range of industries, including healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, distribution, and services.

Andrew joined West Monroe from GE Healthcare where he led the global IT M&A team focused on divestitures, acquisitions, joint ventures, and rooftop consolidations driving transactions from due diligence through integration and separation. He also led many of GE Healthcare’s global ERP deployments for newly purchases businesses during his tenure. He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and management information systems from Creighton University.
