About George

George studied BSc Economics at Loughborough University with

an industrial placement year working in Audit/Accountancy at Haines Watts.

Upon graduation he joined the Haines Watts graduate scheme and completed the ICAEW CFAB qualification before deciding to pursue a master’s degree in finance. 


As part of the MSc Finance Programme at Loughborough George experienced the AmplifyME Financial Trading module which inspired him to join the Summer Analyst Training Programme whilst completing his studies. He excelled as part of the programme and subsequently joined the AmplifyME team first as a Regional Representative, before working his way up to Head of AmplifyME. 

He now leads our university team, managing client

When he is not supporting the AmplifyME mission, he can be found playing sports or raising money for charities such as GOSH and Student Minds, causes close to our hearts.
