Andy Wilson

Director, New Product Solutions, Dropbox

An experienced, highly motivated leader with a specialism in delivering large strategic technology programmes, international standards, products and digital change initiatives.

My role is to lead media developments at Dropbox, working with media, entertainment, publishing and digital content organisations to squeeze as much value as possible from Dropbox know-how, technology and services.

Whether working with global entertainment corporations or digital agencies publishing content for any audience on any platform, we can help you develop your projects, share your content and evolve your workflows faster. We are building services that take complexity out of the equation – so you can create, edit, curate and share content in the most effective ways.

I entered the industry on the cusp of major change in 2000, and that theme of change has continued throughout my career from telecine and video to online and digital, via Aardman Animations and roles at the BBC that saw me take various shows onto the web, develop interactive content and products as well as helping to build brands like BBC iPlayer.

Outside work, I’m just as driven and motivated, with interests that include kayaking and racing Brompton bikes. I also love to share my knowledge and experiences with others. This includes being a chair of a charity that encourages young people to get involved in careers in science and technology.
