Lieutenant General (Ret.) Sir Andrew Richard Gregory, KBE, CB, served in the British Army for more than 30 years, retiring as chief of defense people. For his services, he was awarded the Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) in the 2010 Queen’s Birthday Honors, and six years later, he was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE). Since 2017, he has also held the position of Master Gunner St. James’s Park, serving as a liaison between the Royal Regiment of Artillery and the captain general.
In 2016, he accepted the role of chief executive and controller of SSAFA (Soldiers’, Sailors’ & Airmen’s Families Association), an organization founded in 1885 to support members of the British Armed Forces, veterans and their families. Today, much of his work centers around this role.
