As the President of Rogerson Business Services in Sacramento, CA, Andrew assists his clients with both selling and buying businesses.
Since 1983, Andrew has owned and operated five businesses. At just 27 years old, he bought his first business, an international travel agency. With hard work resulting in increased sales, Andrew sold the travel agency just two years later for 2 1/2 times his original purchase price.
Andrew's next venture involved owning and managing two retail office equipment/furniture stores, followed by a wholesale travel and tourism company based in Los Angeles that had an annual turnover of $10,000,000. More recently, Andrew and his wife Anne owned an executive suites business in Fair Oaks, CA. Anne operated this business while Andrew worked as an outsourced program manager at the Roseville campus of Hewlett Packard. At HP, Andrew managed a team of 42 employees, deploying a new global call center and support team that included Web developers, technical writers and trainers.
Andrew was educated at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia, his native country, and recently completed studies in Business Valuation and Appraisals and Business Brokerage. Andrew enjoys flying (he is pursuing his pilot's license) and SCUBA diving as well as sports and politics.
