George Backhouse

Head of AmplifyME

About George

George studied Economics and Finance at Loughborough University before embarking on a career in Audit at Haines Watts. After realising accountancy wasn't quite right for him, he decided to test his skills and learn more about other roles within finance and investment which led him to AmplifyME's coveted Summer Analyst Programme in 2020.

He was so inspired by AmplifyME's mission, he immediately joined the team as a regional representative before working his way up to Head of our student division, leading an international team of more than people. George plays an integral role in helping to deliver our simulation technology to students around the world to help them get fast-tracked for their potential, not their background. When he's not working to spread the AmplifyME word, he can be found running marathons for Student Minds, a cause close to our hearts here at AmplifyME.
