Paul Charles commented: “I’m flattered and humbled that Andrew has chosen to invest in The PC Agency and become non-executive Chairman. There is a wide range of companies that he could have chosen to invest in. Andrew has considerable business flair and built one of the most successful and admired tour operators in the travel industry. His business and travel knowledge will be invaluable as we continue to grow in the months and years ahead.”
