Andy Purves

Company Secretary

Andy qualified as a chartered accountant in 1992 and in 1995 set up his own practice which, after 20 years of growing, was sold in 2015 to Douglas Home & Co, to whom he now acts as a business consultant. Since 1999, he has been a director in Adam Purves Galashiels Ltd, a well-established family business with multiple and diverse interests.

Andy was involved in the founding of TRICAPITAL Ltd and, as well as being the Company Secretary and an active investor, has over the years helped guide both investors and investee companies.

Over the years, he has gained considerable exposure to a very wide range of business experiences, through his own business interests, and acting for clients in various different sectors and growth and development phases.

“I relish being part of an organisation where so many opportunities and innovative ideas are presented. It’s particularly pleasing when it’s a local source, and the potential markets are worldwide.“
