Andrea Smart 

Finance Director 

Andrea Smart

A Finance professional with over 20 years’ experience within the Media & Advertising space starting back in the early 90’s at Ogilvy & Mather in London when an Advertising Agency was just that – the fully integrated one-stop shop for all services, over the years working my way through all the major players in the industry WPP, IPG, Omnicom, Publicis and most recently Havas before joining Edge earlier this year. Originally from Newcastle in the NE of England, moved to Sydney in 2010 after an 18 year stint in London.

Who would play you in a film and why?

Helen Hunt (people say I look like her – don’t see it myself) or Sandra Bullock

If you were planning a music festival, who – dead or alive – would be your headliner? 

I’d have two stages – one with musicians currently alive and then the other I’d bring back all the talented people we have lost, Stage 1 - Def Leppard headlining for sure, but with good support bands (Thunder, Poison, Journey, Daughtry, Heart), Stage 2 Prince, Queen with Freddie Mercury, INXS with Michael Hutchence, Soundgarden with Chris Cornell, George Michael

You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go (and why)? 

South of France then back to Oz via Hawaii – my two favourite places of the world, South of France for Grand Prix Weekend and catch up with friends, then a chill out relaxing time in Waikiki

What's your favourite memory? 

Sitting watching Match of The Day with my Dad on a Saturday night

Who is your inspiration? 

My Dad, he’s the best person I’ve ever met, he would give away his last pound in his pocket to help out a family member or friend, 10 years after his death I still have people telling what a great man he was.

You're on a desert island – what album have you brought with you? 

Hysteria by Def Leppard

What would be your death-row dinner? 

Lots of very good European (specifically French) cheeses, the biggest cheese platter you could create all washed out down with the best French Champagne of course (Crystal, Krug or Bolly would be great)
