    Cox began his career in public service with the US Department of Navy, serving as budget analyst at US Joint Forces Command. During his time with the Navy, Cox also served at the Pentagon supporting various budget submissions.

    Cox started his career in education finance with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction (DPI) serving in multiple capacities that culminated in his assignment as Section Chief for School Financial Reporting. As Section Chief, Andrew oversaw the accounting, consulting, collection and reporting of financial data on nearly $12 billion in expenditures, data on more than 1.5 million students and all reconciliations for the State Public School Fund and federal grants to North Carolina.

In that capacity, he implemented efficiencies and improvements in the budgeting and allotment processes, and he maintained the funding system for the calculation and equitable distribution of state and federal allotments and grants to local education agencies and other independent public schools.
