Welcome to #TeamDaugherty
Andrew Darby has had a busy few weeks; in fact, this time in his life could easily be described as life changing. Not only did he recently get married to the love of his life — congrats Andrew — he also joined the Team Daugherty squad in Atlanta. Let’s get to know a bit more about the years leading up to these exciting times.
When Andrew was nearing graduation at Prattville High School, he made the decision to attend the University of Alabama to pursue his degree in management information systems (we are pretty sure the football team’s prestige may have played a factor in his decision). During the course of his studies he had the opportunity to work as an Operations Intern with one of the nation’s largest full-service providers of consumer and commercial banking, wealth management, mortgage and insurance products and services. This incredibly valuable experience allowed Andrew to analyze current money transfer processes to identify potential improvements, and this summer position only solidified his decision to continue in the direction his studies were taking him. After completing his degree, Andrew began working as a Project Manager for a multinational professional services organization. A few months after beginning in this role he made the shift to the technology competency of the organization where he focused on data analysis and conversion.
Andrew really enjoyed his work, and consulting allowed him to tackle challenging work for a number of clients, however there was one problem: too much travel. Recently engaged, Andrew knew that the road-warrior lifestyle wasn’t for him. He began seeking opportunities that would allow him to work where he lived. When Andrew learned about Daugherty’s local business model he knew that this was the place he wanted to be.
Andrew has lived in the Atlanta area for almost two years and he really enjoys what the city has to offer. The Midtown neighborhood is his favorite place to spend time. There are so many great restaurants, and the seemingly constant live music offerings are something that Andrew and his wife really enjoy.
Andrew is no stranger to the city of Atlanta and he is practically a veteran in the consulting industry, but life as a member of Team Daugherty is still new to him. So, if you see him in the hall or even just want to send him a quick “Roll Tide” feel free to introduce yourself. He can’t wait to meet more of his new teammates!
