A new Managing Director for H&H 

After serving with distinction since 2017 as Managing Director, Andrew Reid has decided to step down from that position.  He intends to return to musical work, and our very best wishes will go with him when he hands over his duties on 26th August.

Andrew has led the firm with skill and devotion through an exceptionally eventful and challenging period, during which he has made a notable contribution to many aspects of our work.  He remains a great supporter of H&H, and has accepted an invitation to remain on the Board as a non-executive director.

I am very pleased to announce that Andrew’s successor as Managing Director of H&H will be Andrew Scott.  Andy has spent his entire career with H&H, and thoroughly understands the firm’s values.  He joined us as an apprentice in 1994, and took up the role of London tuner in 2000.  He succeeded Peter Hopps as Head Voicer and member of the management team in 2012, and over the past ten years has led our voicing team with outstanding success.  The most recent examples of their work include the organs of Canterbury Cathedral, York Minster and Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia; the new four-manual organ for Christ Church, Greenwich, Connecticut is being completed as I write.

Andy has been a director of H&H since 2017, and was appointed as Deputy Managing Director in 2021.  Alongside his new role as Managing Director he will retain his responsibilities as Head Voicer.

In addition to his work at H&H, Andy has served on the Board of the International Society of Organbuilders since 2016 and is currently Chairman of the Institute of British Organ Building.  We all wish him well as he prepares to take up his new position in our 161st year.
