Andrew Crossman ‘Andy’ - Creator and Owner

Andy Crossman, the founder of Astech Gold, developed the programme over many years. His father owned horses and consequently Andy has been involved with horse racing most of his life.

He loves a challenge and has always had a keen eye for figures and an interest in data analysis and has worked in Manufacturing, Finance, Local and Central Government.

Andy was involved in the Entertainment Industry managing bands and was an avid ‘Comper’ winning an impressive haul of prizes.

He currently follows Premier Division Football and loves cryptic crosswords when he is not involved in his primary passion, Astech Gold, which he freely admits has been his biggest challenge in life so far.
