promise we'll say hello back!
Hello, if you haven't worked it out already, we are Andrew and Pete, and we run (believe it or not)... Andrew and Pete.
We have always had a real passion for business and entrepreneurship and when we met at Lancaster University we both bonded because of this, so when we came to graduate we thought... let's go for it, let's setup our own business. So Andrew and Pete was created.
After graduating we moved to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Andrew following love, Pete following Andrew. We knew literally nobody in business in Newcastle, we had very little funds to start, and we were in the middle of a recession. But we didn't make excuses, we threw ourselves in 100% and built our business up.
We haven't looked back since. Our passion has grew with the rewards you get from running your own company and our ambitions have only got bigger. We found our niche in working with micro businesses who also have that burning ambition and drive, and still love coming up with creative marketing solutions for both our clients and ourselves.
So, that is us in a nutshell, read more about us below, or get in touch with us. We love meeting friendly new people, so don't be a stranger.
Andrew and Pete
