About Andrew

A resident of the City of St. Louis for over thirty-five years, Andrew Jones was born in 1960 in Cairo, IL.  Raised in East St. Louis with his brother and two sisters, Andrew learned the virtue of hard work and the importance of good mentoring and an education to succeed in life.

During his pursuit of higher education, he earned a BS in economics with a minor in business administration from Lincoln University (Jefferson City, MO), and two graduate degrees, an MA in International Business from Webster University, and an MBA from Washington University's Olin School of Business.

He leveraged this education to enter into and advance in corporate America. As an executive, he led departments of economic development, community development, business development, marketing, communications, and customer care. He has utilized his extensive training in each of the aforementioned disciplines to forge his acumen in correctly identifying "the" issue, and implementing the "effective" fix.

Andrew serves on multiple business and civic boards. He sits on the board of several economic development commissions, in addition to a community development and workforce investment board. He's proud to also be a board member for the Southwestern Illinois leadership council, and actively participates with the RCGA of St. Louis.

Andrew is extremely proud of his efforts in assisting in grassroots programs and helping youth. He has been a volunteer coach of football and basketball at several local high schools. He has participated in mentoring programs; and created Sports Advisory Service, designed to provide young people with "life circumstances" tutoring and assistance. Andrew also authored a book titled, "The Consequence of Choice," as a guide and reference. The mantra it advances is control the controllable.

In his personal life, Andrew has been blessed with approaching 16 years of marriage to his wife Shelia. They have two adult daughters and three boisterous grandchildren. He is also a proud and active member of Omega Psi Phi and very active in its community service efforts.

Andrew wants to utilize all of his experiences, education, and acumen to assist in making St Louis a prosperous city for all of its citizens and stakeholders.
