 Andy leads the 275-strong technology team as Shop Direct continues to invest in and transform its technology and platforms. He joined the company in May 2019 from The Stars Group, a global leader in online gaming, where he became a director following the company’s merger with Sky Betting and Gaming in 2018. Over a nine-year period at Sky Betting and Gaming in roles including CTO and director of technology, Andy transformed the technology team, growing headcount 40-fold to 700, establishing the business’ in-house development capabilities and helping the company become the UK’s largest online gaming operator by number of customers.

Later this year, we will rebrand to The Very Group as part of plans to bring our name and identity in line with our largest and fastest growing retail brand Very.co.uk. Our other brands are Littlewoods.com and LittlewoodsIreland.ie. We receive an average of more than 1.4 million website visits every day, with 74% of online sales completed on mobile devices.
