Andrew Hornby, Inverse Energy – Operations Director.
Fifteen years ago, Andrew Hornby had a passion for investing and spent his university days in Manchester “gambling” on the direction of companies such as BHP, Transocean, and BP, as well as indices such as Brent Oil and WTI.
Andrew’s passion for investing sparked an interest in the energy sector which stayed with him as he moved halfway across the world to Western Australia seven years ago.
On arriving in Perth, Andrew was approached to join Sthree to provide recruitment services to the oil and gas sector; the beginning of a seven-year career.
He left Sthree in 2015 to build his own recruitment company, Inverse Energy, focused on “quality, creativity, and a specialisation in the energy sector”.
In the past five years, Inverse Energy has grown to provide recruitment services across the energy and resources, battery minerals and mining, infrastructure, and defence industries and always strives to “provide professionals who can improve, inspire, create an enjoyable environment, and get the job done”.
“In today’s market it helps to be agile and have the ambition to overcome the many challenges we face,” Andrew said. “I am very lucky to have a strong team who help guide and support each other every day.”
Andrew has been a member of the Petroleum Club for the past five years, and is now a board member, leading the PCWA Education Program team.
However, the PCWA Education Program team isn’t the only one he leads.
Andrew and his partner Victoria, who he describes as the most awesome person he knows, have two children: Hudson, 8, and Millen, 5.
Much of his time spent outside work includes supporting his children’s interests in sport, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and generally going on as many adventures as they can together.
Whenever he can, Andrew likes to keep up with his interests, which include Formula One motor racing, the history of watchmaking, and the occasional stock market investment.
Andrew is looking forward to the end of COVID-19, hoping to meet Santa in Lapland for Christmas and go on a European adventure.
