A co-founder of Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits Ltd. along with Murray Marshall and Barry Gordon, Andrew was the owner and founder of Boka Wines & Spirits Ltd. (Boka), which he created in September of 1997 as an imported wines, spirits and beer agency and later expanded to also represent domestic wines. Andrew had tremendous early success with Boka, which has continued since its acquisition by Diamond Estates. He has a proven ability to sell and negotiate with the LCBO and foreign and domestic producers, which he used to build a portfolio with sales to the LCBO (both to the large volume General List and the specialty Vintages and Classics Catalogue divisions), licensees and private customers.
Prior to establishing Boka, Andrew was a corporate, banking and international trade lawyer practicing at the firm McMillan Binch (Barristers and Solicitors) where he amassed experience in mergers and acquisitions, private company asset and share sales, financing and international trade.
