Introducing Andrew Young – General Manager, Canary Coaches
by Andrew Young
It is a privilege and extremely gratifying to be part of the Canary Coaches amazing team. Fighting diabetes has been my long-time passion. Experiencing it- Type 1 in my case – since the age of 26 reorganized my life. For the first 6 months I was shocked and depressed at the diagnosis. However, with research and the support of others I learned to accept it and adapt. And in time my diabetes transformed from a problem to a contribution.
In 2008 I reached out to and then worked for Diabetes in Control. Take Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) invited me on their Board – a huge stroke of luck, and I continue to enjoy volunteering in that role. Now I’m so grateful to be able to work side-by-side with some of the most dedicated and committed people you can find in the fight to reverse pre diabetes, at Canary Coaches.
By way of professional experience, I was co-Founder and former President of Intellect, an award-winning quality management and workflow software company in Los Angeles. After finding a successor, I became President of Diabetes in Control, a medical education and diagnostic device company which we brought out of insolvency, grew substantially, and sold in 2014. Subsequently I led CoreMedia – a clinical reference lab – out of insolvency as CEO, helping position it for a venture capital investment. I received my MBA from UCLA and Bachelor’s in Engineering from UC Berkeley.
