What do people say about Andrew

Shamir Jiwa

CEO & Founder of The Maximeyes Group
Andrew is a highly effective and reliable individual who consistently strives to overcome industry challenges. He has brought a real energy and passion to ENERGeyes and has been instrumental in driving business growth. A 10X thinker with a positive ‘can do’ attitude, he builds long term client relationships through an absolute focus on improving the customer experience. Together we are looking to revolutionise the utility connections industry whilst using business as a force for good.


Andrew started his career at Screentec. He worked doing trivial administrative tasks but enjoyed the camaraderie of small business and the freedom that came with earning money for himself.

Following this he secured a role at a smaller Cardiff legal firm in the hope of becoming a solicitor. That role was short lived.

Andrew describes his time there as “very hierarchical. I genuinely felt like I was the smartest person in the room but simply didn’t have the freedom or authority to express it. The role of many smaller legal practices will soon be replaced by AI because in an environment where people aren’t encouraged to think for themselves, machines will always have the upper hand.”.

Andrew quickly moved on to Amber Energy where his brother Ian had started his career. It was there that Andrew’s entrepreneurial spirit began to thrive. He credits Nick Proctor with creating an exceptional entrepreneurial environment within which employees felt there was no limit to what they could achieve. Andrew stated “Nick was a role model. A normal guy who was destined to achieve success through sheer hard work and relentless perseverance. I felt at home at Amber Energy and part of something much bigger than myself”.

Andrew moved to London in 2017. He had been head hunted by Shamir Jiwa following the recommendation of his brother Ian, to head up Energ-Eyes Limited as the Commercial Director.
