In 2002, Andy co-founded ADC Partners, an agency providing strategic marketing solutions for the unique challenges faced by both new and established businesses. ADC clients include the American Automobile Association, Amtrak, Blue Shield of California, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Memphis Grizzlies and several universities including U.C. Berkeley, San Diego State and U.C. Davis.
Prior to launching ADC, Andy worked at two Bay Area based agencies (MGO Marketing Group and The Wilkinson Group) helping corporate clients and properties address the unique challenges of the sponsorship, sports, entertainment and leisure-lifestyle industry. During this time he worked with various clients including Pacific Bell, Fresno State University, Clorox, Marine World Africa U.S.A. and the California Milk Advisory Board. On behalf of Fresno State University, he was part of a team that helped create the record setting collegiate naming rights partnership for the new on-campus venue, the SaveMart Center.
He also helped launch the Pete Newell Challenge, a unique collegiate basketball event which has featured Duke, Kansas, Stanford, Cal, North Carolina, and Indiana among its line-up of teams. In only its second year of existence, the Newell set a California state attendance record (19,267) for college basketball.
Andy started his career selling for the Golden State Warriors and credits that experience as the foundation for his professional development. He held several positions at the Warriors and ultimately was responsible for all sales and marketing efforts.
