The founder and president of Precise Home Management, Andrew Lowrey, was formally trained as a British Butler and has held the positions of Butler and Estate Manager in homes and on private yachts throughout Europe and America for nearly two decades.
Mr. Lowrey's service career began serving British Royalty at Buckingham Palace while training in the hotel business. A native Englishman, Andrew continued to work in four and five star hotels in Cambridge and London until his voyage took him aboard the prestigious P&O Cruise Line and the Cunard Line's QE2 as purser.
Upon Andrew's return from his deployment during the Falkland Conflict, he established and operated his own restaurant in Cambridgeshire, England. After completing and graduating from the prestigious Ivor Spencer International Butler School, Andrew was employed as Head Steward on the 345 ft private yacht of Saudi Royalty. Having traveled the Globe extensively during his career, Andrew relocated to the United States to accept the position of Butler and Estate Manager for one of Maryland's most prominent families in a 25,000 sq foot home built for a member of the Vanderbilt family.
In 1998, Andrew founded Precise Home Management. In addition to consulting, training and sourcing domestic staff and management for clients' homes worldwide, Andrew has advised and appeared as the Butler on the ABC Series "The Family."
