Vice President, General Counsel

Andrew Dennis joined The Beach Company in 2017 with over 10 years of experience in the legal services industry. Andrew earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earned a Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina.

He previously represented The Beach Company for nine years while working with Nexsen Pruet in Charleston. During that time, he was able to develop relationships and friendships with many of the staff. Today, Andrew oversees outside legal services and is the General Counsel for The Beach Company and its various affiliates and related companies.

“They treated me like family when I was a vendor, so when the opportunity to work here came up, it was a no brainer,” Andrew said.

Andrew was a recipient of The Charleston Regional Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40″ award in 2015 and is a graduate of both Leadership Charleston and Leadership Berkeley.  Andrew and his wife, both natives of the Low Country, have two daughters, and are active in their local church.

“When it is all said and done, I don’t want to be primarily remembered as a great lawyer, I want to first be remembered as a great father and a great husband,” Andrew said. “My family is more important to me than any award or personal accomplishment, and I’m grateful that The Beach Company respects a healthy balance of life.”

Andrew enjoys the collaborative team environment found at The Beach Company, which he believes gives him the opportunity to work side-by-side with a talented group of individuals that are all experts in their field. “We all learn from and listen to each other which, at the end of the day, allows each of us to constantly improve what we do” he said.

“We are committed to quality development and responsible, controlled growth,” Andrew said. “I think our ability to weather the recession and emerge as we have in the last several years is a testament to our team and their commitment to smart growth.”
