Andrew Band (March)

Having been raised in March, Andrew returned to his home town after graduating from De Montfort University, Leicester, in 1994. Training with the firm in their March office, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1998 and he is now a resident partner. Andrew has developed a diverse portfolio of clients, although his area of expertise is primarily in dealing with owner managed businesses. Andrew also advises many of our agri related clients, including not only farming businesses but some larger businesses in the agriculture supply chain, due him being an audit partner in the firm. Andrew has a young family but also manages to spend some time pursuing interests outside of work and enjoys spending time in the countryside.
