Biography

Andrew Wessels is the Founder and CEO of The Marque. A natural communicator and a successful entrepreneur in his own right, Andrew traded a first-class cricket career in his native South Africa for a British-based business trajectory; from J.P Morgan Investment Management to Carphone Warehouse where he helped set up the Wireless Internet Portfolio (later to become Frontiers Capital). Since then, Andrew has focused his energies on innovative start-ups and helped launch Marquis Jet in Europe following their successful launch in the USA (later sold to Netjets) and Storm Solutions, a telecoms business which he successfully exited in 2012.

Whilst pondering his next business move, Andrew spotted a gap in the market that gave rise in 2015 to The Marque; a platform designed to meet the needs of successful individuals wanting to establish a readily searchable and accurate digital profile, without the concern of unsolicited approaches associated with other platforms. A global innovator in managing online profiles, Andrew is now steering business profiling into its digital future with a profile management business for the 21st Century. Embracing an emerging future in online image media in which our online profiles are certain to be as, if not more, important than their real-life counterparts, The Marque has rapidly become a global prototype; the de facto source of trusted, elegantly crafted information about successful people on the web. ‘Two years ago, nobody cared about their online profile’, says Andrew. ‘That has all changed and here at The Marque we are passionate about spearheading that change.’

With a strong client base in London, New York and Hong Kong, The Marque has recently expanded into other territories in the US, Europe and the Middle East.

Families must launch their own websites

“Wealthy families are coming under increasing political and public pressure to communicate their economic impact to the outside world.” Our latest research, however, shows a powerful yet simple solution. Rather than let their reputations be determined by third-party information, families need to put more information online about themselves — perhaps on existing family company websites, new ones for their family offices or foundations or even via platforms like The Marque.
