During his career, Andrew has been House of Commons lobby correspondent in London, White House correspondent in Washington DC and Wall Street correspondent in New York – all for The Economist. He was made British Editor of The Economist in 1982.

The following year he left The Economist, to become Editor of The Sunday Times of London, one of the world's most prestigious and influential newspapers. Over the next 11 years he turned it into the undisputed multi-section market leader, renowned for its investigative journalism and scoops.

While still editing The Sunday Times he also served as Executive Chairman of Sky Television, which he launched in 1989 as Britain's first multi-channel satellite TV platform. It is now a £15bn company.

Until recently he was a member of the International Advisory Board of Al Jazeera, the international news channel based in Doha, Qatar; and Publisher of The Scotsman Group of newspapers in Edinburgh for 10 years.

He has lectured on politics, economics, international relations, business and the digital revolution to some of the most important companies in the world, from Microsoft and Oracle to HSBC and Citibank.

Born in Scotland, he graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1971 with an MA (Hons) in Political Economy, Political Science and American History.

In October 1996 Macmillan published his autobiography "Full Disclosure", on his Sunday Times and Sky TV years, which was serialized in Vanity Fair in America and the Daily Mail in Britain.

Andrew is a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts (FRSA) and holds several honorary degrees. In 1999 he was elected Lord Rector of the University of St Andrews, one of the oldest and most distinguished universities in the world. On stepping down from that post he was made a Doctor of Laws by the university.

He was awarded Journalist of the Year in 2013 by the prestigious British Political Studies Association.
