Andy Litten – National Account Development Specialist
Background: I was born and lived in a small village called Brough in East Yorkshire. Brough was originally a Roman fort called ‘Petuaria’ that was founded in 70 AD. Archaeological excavations of the area in 1941 unearthed a Roman villa with several ‘great mosaic’ floors. While the priceless mosaics were being transported to the museum, one of them was stolen and has never been recovered. I now live in Anna Bay and I’ve got one of the best Roman mosaic style pool areas in NSW.
Education: I attended the South Hunsley High School, and subsequently completed various trade certificates, safety, auditing and project management qualifications.
Career: I had my first job at 13 picking strawberries and I ate half of all the strawberries that I picked. I now don’t like strawberries. When I left school, I started work at British Aerospace and completed a 4 year Aircraft Fitting apprenticeship before becoming a Process Engineer. I’ve had a varied career in the aviation, ship building, civil construction and employment services industries.
Last job: My most recent job was in the employment services sector. I was the Regional Customer Activation Manager, rolling out various government employment programs for the Hunter and Sydney unemployed youth.
Outside work: I have four kids and all of them are named after Australian places. My three girls are called Kempsey, Albany & Brooklyn and my young bloke is called Eden. We did think of calling him Dungog or Cessnock but settled for Eden. I like to go fishing and I’m always out on the water if the weather is good. I like to get out on the weekend and I often end up catching crabs.
