Georgia is our Senior Accountant and a qualified Chartered Accountant with 5 years’ experience in public practice. Prior to joining Montague Partners in November 2016, she worked for a large mid-tier firm where she gained experience in a number of different industries and client sizes ranging from small business to international corporates to ultra-high net wealth family groups.

She has a particular interest in small business structuring and advisory, but also has a strong background in management reporting and tax residency. At Montague Partners, she has developed specialisations in the horse racing and hospitality industries. These feed her two loves of animals and food – which aren’t always mutually exclusive.
