Andy GlenisterAndrew David Glenister, usually called Andy, was born 30 May 1955, at his parent's house in Ruislip, Middlesex. He is the youngest of the family, with three brothers and a sister.

He was educated at Bourne County Primary School, Greenford County Grammar School, and the University of Exeter, where he read Latin.

He married Cheryl Burnett on 26 December 1992 on the island of St Lucia in the Caribbean. There are some interesting coincidences in their lives - they were at school together from age 9 to age 11, and their birthdays are just two days apart. Andy and Cheryl do not have any children.

Andy works for an independent consultancy, helping organisations to arrange and manage effective use of IT and business processes which are outsourced. Based at home near Winchester, Hampshire, this work takes him all over the UK.

Other interests
For recreation, Andy and Cheryl enjoy watching motor racing, particularly the Formula 1 Grand Prix, and travelling to interesting places. They try to combine the two interests by visiting the Grand Prixs in the UK, Germany, and Monaco (which usually coincides with their birthdays). Their travels also take them around England, where they enjoy discovering the beauty of the countryside, the occasional parish church, and the village pub.
