Andrew William Tess Named Vice President & Editor-at-Large

International marketing and branding guru, Andrew William Tess, lends his experience and expertise to Reviews & Trends Magazine Editorial Board

"A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent." — Gen. Douglas MacArthur

Storyteller. Editor. Artist. Creative. Founder of Type And Brand Services, Andrew William Tess, is an intrepid communications and brand strategist with experience in publishing, fine art, graphic design, and fashion. A results-oriented business development leader, Tess was named Reviews & Trends Magazine’s Vice President & Editor-at-Large and brings with him an unparalleled passion for storytelling and brand development.

In addition to his work as a writer and designer, Tess is an engaging public speaker and youth mentor who shares his experiences as a survivor; discussing such topics as grief and loss, growing through trauma, identity and self-motivation. Orphaned by a single mother, Andrew understands the self-reliant drive it takes to overcome the odds, and the fortitude required to maintain your humor and spark in the darkest of times. Success is not given, it is earned, and this philosophy is central to his mindset of consistently pulling victory from the jaws of defeat.

Having broken through corporate ceilings to realize his potential, Tess strives to teach others to value their time and effort properly, so they invest in themselves and define their own story. His experience has taught him that bias and stereotypes are persistent but easily challenged when confronted courageously and honestly. Principled but pragmatic, a motto he lives by in preaching and practice, guides his work as a business development leader.

Andrew credits his incredible fortitude to the example and strength of his mother, and finds his greatest purpose in fatherhood. As a multifaceted creative and empathic communicator, he understands the need for finding meaning and purpose in your life, work and career, and has dedicated his life to changing the narratives that delimit our potential and help others break out of their mental blocks to becoming their own hero. * * * StrengthsFinder 2.0 Assessment Top 5 Themes: Communication | Empathy | Strategic | Developer | Belief
