Elliott joins Grant Thornton as Growth 365 adviser
Mr Elliot has held non-executive chairman and director roles for more than 20 tech companies. He has also developed a proven track record in assisting fast-growing businesses keen to operate on the global stage.
Following several years of assisting business leaders in England, Grant Thornton’s Growth 365 was officially launched in Scotland last year. It has been used by CEOs across a variety of sectors, from food and drink to public relations.
Andrew Howie, the firm’s managing partner in Scotland, said: “George has an enviable reputation in the business world and his work with the growing tech sector really demonstrates his understanding of the challenges and aspirations that CEOs face – particularly at that crucial point when they’re keen to expand and hungry for advice and support.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Elliott said: “We have a really rich mix of business talent in Scotland, but there’s often a lack of support for the people driving that entrepreneurial growth at the top.”
