Andrew James Constance was born on October 31, 1973 (age 48 years) in Sydney, Australia.
At the time Constance was elected in 2003, he was aged 29 years, and he became the youngest member of the Parliament. Constance previously worked as a corporate affairs consultant representing large industry associations and multinationals in the Asia-Pacific region. A former President of the Young Liberals, his family connections in the Bega area stem back to the 1860s when his great-great-grandfather, James Constance, drove a team of bullocks through the Bega Valley.
Constance was appointed Minister for Ageing and Disability Services in 2011 and championed the person-centred reforms which were necessary steps towards the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Under Constance’s stewardship, NSW became the first Australian state or territory to agree to the full funding of the scheme with the Commonwealth.
Andrew Constance was promoted as Minister for Finance and Services in 2013 after the sacking of Greg Pearce, with the portfolio of Ageing and Disability Services transferred to John Ajaka.
Due to the resignation of Barry O’Farrell as Premier, and the subsequent ministerial reshuffle by Mike Baird, the former Treasurer and new Liberal Leader, in April 2014 Constance was appointed as Treasurer; and his responsibilities expanded to include Industrial Relations less than one month later. Constance handed down his first Budget on 17 June 2014.
