Andrew Pickford works between North America and Australia in the areas of strategy, economic analysis and energy with a range of organisations, both private and public.
He has particular expertise with natural gas markets, electricity utilities, industry-driven applied research and the reform and transformation of businesses and governments during periods of turbulence. Andrew maintains a mix of appointments and engagements in both Australia and North America, working with decision makers in corporate, government, academic and civil society settings.
His initial training within KPMG in internal audit and risk management results in an understanding of business and management realities. From traversing grand strategy to long-term economic trends, he has been fortunate to work with some of the world’s most distinguished strategists and experienced company directors. This background and experience produce insights and advice which are easily understood and actioned by directors, government ministers and CEOs, while at the same time maintaining a deep and unique approach to rigorous analysis.
He is currently completing a PhD at the University of Western Australia on energy history under the supervision of Professor Jenny Gregory. This project is tentatively titled Corridors of Power: An Energy History of the Creation and Development of Western Australia’s Town Gas, Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas Industries, 1886-2009.
