Meet the Team
Our MD – Andrew Stokes (Andy)
SS Systems has been around since 1997 set up by Andy’s father Ron. In 2008, Ron passed the mantle over to Andy.
Andy has been the MD of SS Systems since 2008 and he has ambitious plans for the family firm.
Business is all about relationships isn’t it? So as part of our “Meet the Team” initiative, we’ve created posts about each of our team members – the exercise has turned up some pretty amazing facts so here’s Andy’s profile.
Andy is married to Kerry, has 2 kids Jack and Hannah and 1 golden retriever called Archie who loves nothing more than swimming to the bottom of lakes in pursuit of large sticks! The kids are active too – Jack loves athletics and competes with Rotherham Harriers which means Andy spends hours of his time taking him to competitions all over the north of the country, while Hannah enjoys singing with a local community group….and doesn’t share chocolate!
On another note (and apologies to the other teams in the area) Andy is an avid SWFC fan and follows the team with great pride (bordering on obsession).
Interesting fact: Andy once dressed up as a pink lady with wellington boots at the annual wheelbarrow race in Bakewell. And here’s the photo to prove it – we’ll leave you guessing as to whether he’s on the left or the right.
