Andy created dovetail solutions in 2005, with the idea of facilitating the intersection of private business, not for profit organizations/NGOs, and local, state, and federal government to accomplish seemingly intractable goals in communications, branding and marketing, community, and civic involvement, with results driven solutions. As the CEO, Andy drives the direction, growth, and strategy for the firm.

With more than 34 years of communications experience in all 3 areas of intersection combined, Andy has driven hundreds of communications and marketing campaigns which have led to national award-winning accolades, and solid results. With communications as his passion, Andy has helped to lead brand efforts which are nationally recognized, in a myriad of industries which include real estate development, aviation, hospitality, technology, life sciences, financial, design, automotive, legal, and commercial real estate.

Andy has long been known and recognized for his unique, out of the box innovation and creativity. Andy is often associated with sensible, thoughtful, and focused based work, which helps create a narrative for dovetail solutions’ client partners. Andy also has a long history of crisis and issues management work, for which he is consistently recognized.

Andy collaborates with the best team at dovetail solutions to create, establish, and protect the work on behalf of client partners. Recognized publicly as a born leader, Andy is best suited to be in the trenches with the team. He is a connector by nature and enjoys the work of facilitating mutually beneficial relationships with proven results.  He has been quoted in numerous books, interviewed by many who seek to know more about his philosophy, and speaks regularly on topics directly relevant to that which he practices.

Andy is very active in the community, establishing the 501c3 foundation for the firm in 2008, called ExecConnect. He is quite a fierce advocate for women and children, helping to establish a safe home for victims of domestic violence, chairing the board of Kempe Foundation, a center for the treatment of victims of child abuse. Andy currently serves as the Chairman of the Board for Cherry Creek North in Denver, he is on the board of the Denver Scholarship Foundation, Colorado Inclusive Economy, and serves as an advisor to a number of early-stage companies.

He also appears weekly on network news as a senior political commentator. Andy takes every opportunity to be a part of a team to bring needed change to these areas and brings with him a strong belief in the good of others.

Further, Andy has a very long and well-respected career in politics. He has served numerous mayoral, gubernatorial, U.S. House and Senate candidates as a seasoned political advisor for more than 35 years and worked extensively on the presidential campaigns of a number of candidates, of which 3 were successful. He also served as the youngest member in Colorado’s history on the Democratic National Committee, from 2000-2004, casting the vote to bring the Democratic National Convention to Denver in 2008.
