Andrew "Andy" Wilman (born 16 August 1962) is an English television producer who is best known as the former executive producer of the Top Gear show, from 2002 to 2015. He was responsible for much of the show's style and humour, along with Jeremy Clarkson. He has also presented segments of the original Top Gear. He's primarily responsible for the creation of The Stig.

Wilman and Clarkson were both educated at Repton School.

After the original Top Gear was cancelled by the BBC, Wilman and fellow ex-presenter Clarkson pitched a new format, and succeeded in getting permission for a new show. Apart from Top Gear, Wilman has worked with Clarkson on a number of other television projects. In April 2015, Wilman announced that he resigned as executive producer of BBC's Top Gear after the termination of Jeremy Clarkson's in March 2015 due to his alleged attack on a producer.[2]
