I'm Andy Quach.

I'm a strategy consultant, born and raised in the UK. I currently work at Oliver Wyman, where I specialise in designing, improving and executing commercial propositions - in other words, I help companies to grow their business! Owing to my background as a Cambridge economist and second-generation immigrant, I like to think that I have an analytical mindset but also care deeply about creating tangible impact (see below for my projects). A common theme through my life is the importance of self-development - as someone who believes they only got where they are through perserverance (and a good dose of luck!), I want to remain humble and keep learning.

Outside of work, I like to keep fit through cycling and have a keen interest in reading non-fiction. Alongside developing my side-projects, I'm also learning Vietnamese to better embrace my Vietnamese heritage and connect with my parents.

Welcome to my site 🙂

My background.

Cambridge Economist

I studied at the University of Cambridge (King's College) where I studied economics and graduated with a first. On reflection, it has helped shaped to me hugely as a person, from the way I think about things to the way I articulate myself.

Strategy Consultant

I'm currently working at Oliver Wyman as a strategy consultant. I am currently aligned to the Pricing, Sales and Marketing (PSM) practice in which I help clients to grow their revenue - projects have included a go-to-market strategy for a Online Travel Agency (OTA) and a commercial turnaround strategy for a major UK general insurer.

British Vietnamese

I am half-Chinese and half-Vietnamese, with both parents migrating from Vietnam to the UK during the Sino-Vietnamese war in 1979. Although having a different background to others made me wary when I was young, I now think that I'm fortunate, in the sense that being raised in the UK has afforded me a lot of privileges and in the sense that it gives me a unique perspective on life.

My projects.

The Cambridge Guild (2016 - 2017)

Having recognised a gap in the student society landscape at Cambridge, I founded and built the Cambrige Guild, a society dedicated to helping students to kickstart their careers. The society grew far faster than I would have expected, becoming Cambridge's largest careers society with >£10k in sponsorship funds and >2000 new members in its first years. The society is alive and thriving even today.

BVGS Oxbridge Access (2019 - Present)

As the only student to have been admitted to Cambridge in my year group at secondary school, I recognise the role that luck and serendipity has played in my life. To support social mobility in Birmingham, I have designed and piloted a programme to provide high-potential students with mock Oxbridge supervisions in advance of interviews. To date, I have directly supported 1 student into Oxbridge economics and the scheme has already benefited a further 10.

OW London Social Committee (2020 - Present)

Recognising the impact of lockdowns and social distancing on the office community, I volunteered to take the role as Chair of Oliver Wyman London's Social Committee. Acting in this role and with the buy-in from the London Office Lead, I expanded the remit of the committee to help connect the UK&I's wider colleague network. Flagship initiatives launched to date include virtual coffees, which have fostered 50+ new connections, and shared interest groups.

Vietnamese Family Partnership (2020 - Present)

I am the trustee for a charity that aims to unite and support the wider British Vietnamese community, the Vietnamese Family Partnership. Growing up with few other British-Vietnamse around me, I had long struggled with my own sense of identity. It was not until a solo trip to Vietnam in 2019 that I came to appreciate and find value in my Vietnamese heritage. Within VFP, I lead our fundraising efforts and am responsible for designing & executing our strategic roadmap.
