Georgina founded GCLA in July 2018. She works with a select group of client-partners to optimise the Boards, Exec Teams and People levers of portfolio companies, and to enhance the partnership dynamic between Investors, Chairs and CEO's.
Having started her career in management consulting in Australia, Georgina spent a number of years leading Organisational Effectiveness and Talent functions in two global Financial Institutions.
She then went on to lead the scale up of YSC’s European Private Equity arm, establishing a PE & VC focused proposition for both portfolio companies and Investment Firms in the region. In building out this vertical with her team, Georgina partnered with a broad range of investment partners, from family offices to mid-market and large cap PE funds and Pension Funds. It was here that Georgina realised her passion for beyond the 'diagnosis' of leaders and dynamics in order to optimise them – helping them to grow as their businesses grow - and of helping her clients to better leverage the People function as a lever for value creation.
She has worked across multiple industries, geographies and company sizes, with particular depth of expertise and enthusiasm for growth capital contexts.
Georgina has studied Commerce at UNSW Australia and Psychodynamics at London’s Tavistock Institute. She is an AOEC and ICF accredited coach and is actively involved with the Neuroleadership Institute.
