Andy MacNaughton

Andy was himself a Vistage member for a number of years and came to the organisation because of a feeling of isolation and lack of support in his first CEO role. He enjoyed his time at Vistage, made lasting, important friendships and found it a safe space to discuss professional and personal issues at a crucial, high pressured time in his career.

He is passionate about coaching and mentoring business leaders to help them reach their fullest potential. He combines wide experience at a senior level with an astute mind and a highly attuned emotional intelligence for excellent results. His strengths are his calmness, patience, an ability to build and lead strong teams and an understanding of diverse business ecosystems.

He has worked at Board level for over thirty years and has significant experience across a number of sectors within blue chip companies and SMEs in both functional and P&L accountable roles.

Andy has a vast range of experience including M&A, fund raising, corporate turnarounds, growth, contracts, commercial management and negotiation. He is a world class negotiator and one of the founding members of World Commerce and Contracting (formerly IACCM) which now has a global membership of over 70,000. Andy continues to be actively involved with World Commerce and Contracting.

Andy studied at the Henley Business School in 2019 and is now a fully qualified executive coach and mentor.

He has been married to Tina for thirty-three years. They have three grown up sons and two grandsons. Andy has a passion for rugby, scuba diving and early morning golf.
