Mr. Andrew Nicholson

CEO Osprey Flight Solutions

After graduating with a degree in engineering, Andrew spent 12 years in the Royal Navy, 6 with UK Special Forces, which included operational tours in all major conflict regions. Leaving the military at the height of the Somali Piracy phenomenon, for the next 3 years Andrew led the maritime and oil and gas divisions for the largest provider of maritime security in the industry.

At the same time, he was a member of the steering committee and subsequent Board of Directors for the only international human rights focused initiative for the risk management industry.  Andrew moved to International SOS and Control Risks in July 2014 to head up the aviation security team. Realising that the industry’s requirement for risk management support had changed in the wake of the MH17 disaster, Andrew founded Osprey Flight Solutions with the aim of driving a quantum shift in the capabilities available to the industry for risk management, enabled by a focus on cutting edge computing techniques and data-led risk management.

Osprey is now recognised across the industry as the leader in open source risk management data, developing innovative tools to support all operators, no matter their size or resource, in conducting comprehensive and accurate risk management.
