Andrew Griffith

Member of Parliament for Arundel and South Downs



Andrew Griffith initially worked for Rothschild Investment Bank and later joined Sky: he was CFO for eight years and then COO for three years. From 2014 to 2019, he was also a non-executive director of Just Eat. Despite unsuccessfully contesting the seat of Corby in 2001 and 2005, he was chosen to lead the “Fix Britain’s Internet” campaign with Baroness Dido Harding in 2016. Griffith spent time as chairman of the advisory board at the Centre for Policy Studies, a think tank with libertarian, free market goals. He positioned himself for a strong election to Westminster in 2019 by lending the use of his house in London to Boris Johnson’s team to run their campaign and plan their first days in office. Griffith’s entrance into the political fray was soon forthcoming, with Johnson appointing Griffith as his Chief Business Adviser in Downing Street in 2019. Less than six months later, he was further rewarded with the safe seat of Arundel and South Downs. In November 2020, Griffith was appointed as the UK’s Net Zero Business Champion to support the business community align with the government’s new policy of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
