Andrew Balmaks

Director & Co-Founder

With more than 30 years’ experience as a leader, manager and strategic planner, Andrew brings a wealth of knowledge to each client’s project.

Andrew typically works with senior management to help clients with their difficult and sensitive problems. A Noetic founder, Andrew works across the Group’s range of sectors and services providing leadership to key projects. He is respected for ‘telling it like it is’ and is known for his ability to build trust and consensus across organizations to drive the required change and to address identified problems. Andrew works to a broad client base and has particular expertise in strategy development, major transformation and change initiatives, and investment management / benefits realization. Andrew has worked with clients around the globe in the Asia-Pacific, the United States, and the Middle East.

Andrew believes a key feature of the Noetic business model is the commitment to delivering a great outcome for clients—an applicable solution to any problem that will have real impact for the organization. He is also a firm believer in the Noetic approach to working with clients, not to come in and ‘reinvent the wheel’. “We are not going to come in and as consultants start from scratch on a problem. We work with clients and build on what they already have. It delivers a much more sustainable solution.”
