Andrew leads a field and product marketing team for LinkedIn’s Sales & Marketing Solutions business in EMEA. He is also a core member of the LinkedIn Geo Ethnic Minority (GEMs) team, whose mission is to attract, motivate and retain a diverse workforce in EMEA. The GEMs team aim to better understand obstacles facing top ethnic minority talent, helping the business to review how they hire top ethnic talent, and recruiting colleagues to join the GEM team. Andrew also mentors BAME talent, believing there is a delicate balance between being comfortable in yourself and being professional – and that the right workplace will allow you to do both. Andrew provides advisory support for BAME small business owners, such as matchmaking service “Sitting in a Tree” and children’s sports camp, Harrow Games. Helping migrants to integrate and build new lives for themselves in the UK is very important to Andrew due to his own experiences of arriving in the UK from Nigeria as a boy and navigating a new society. To support this cause, Andrew volunteered at the Migrants Resource Centre, where he was Company Secretary and Trustee for two years.
