CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
George Brandon is a rare person who combines deep substantive knowledge with a generous, sharing nature. Born and educated in the UK, he is a chartered accountant who entered law firm management in 1989. From his financial background, he understood the need for systems to support communications with clients and drive successful marketing efforts. As an in-house marketer with Denton Hall, he helped that firm grow its business and client relationships. George’s skills then led him to a position with Thomson Elite, where he works with law firms throughout the world to implement marketing programs.
But that is not what makes George a rare person – it’s his generous spirit, sharing what he knows, going the extra distance to help his clients, not making those of us who aren’t techies feel stupid for asking questions. He reaches out to develop friendships that span the globe. He and Kathy extend their personal hospitality to George’s clients, making the day-to-day grind of a training program more bearable for those away from home. George is a leader in his field.
