Full biography of Andrew Strauss

Strauss stepped down as England Cricket Captain in August 2012 having played 100 Tests matches for England. He captained the side on 50 occasions and retired from the game as one of England’s most successful captains of all time, taking England to their first Ashes series win in Australia for 24 years.

Strauss finished his career in the top 10 leading run scorers for England in Tests, having passed 7,000 runs – hitting 21 hundreds in the process.

During his career, Andrew was also capped 127 times in the ODI team. In 2009, he was nominated for ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’ and was granted the ‘Freedom of the City of London’.

He is the consummate professional and despite his late arrival on the international scene (following time working in the City) he made the best of his talent in order to become one of the very best international opening batsmen during his career and in 2009 he was the leading international run scorer worldwide. With 21 Test centuries to his name Andrew finishes his career the joint second highest century maker in English history.

His leadership qualities and mature and personable character means that he is able to work with and entertain Corporates, Brands and Customers alike and is able to deliver the intended message to the very highest standard and attract a high level of interest from Clients and the Media to what he has to say.

A family man with two children, Andrew is an ideal brand ambassador for a Company which by having an association with the England captain can only benefit from such an alliance.

Andrew’s desire is to have 2 or 3 key long-term relationships only so he is able to focus on and personalise the individual association with each of the organisations he works alongside. Following his retirement, Andrew worked for Sky Sports, The Sunday Times and was also Director of Cricket at the ECB.

Andrew has worked with Metlife, which is a worldwide provider of insurance and financial services, as a sponsor of the back of his bat and who he has been involved with since 2008. In addition, he is also a brand ambassador for Gray Nicolls who are leading specialists in cricket equipment supply and who sponsored Andrew throughout his career. Austin Reed have also signed Andrew up as a brand ambassador for their ‘Q Club’ which aims to attract male customers to use their state of the art private Q Club in their Regent Street headquarters. Andrew is also an ambassador for the Jaguar Sports Academy, which aims to support young sporting stars through their Academy set up.

I just wanted to say thank you for your presentation at our management conference and also for staying around for 'Escape the Box'. It was a really interesting presentation and it certainly reinforced quite a few things for me that I know we've not been good at which includes the constant checking/measurement against your strategic objectives. From a personal point of view I was very interested in the ongoing efforts to make sure we are meeting all our targets in advance of next year and the importance of certain measures. I also did a fair amount of checking with our international colleagues during the rest of the day and night and they were all very complimentary and didn't at all feel a lack of understanding of cricket hindered their enjoyment of your presentation. Thanks again.'
