George has recently graduated cum laude from the University of South Florida, Tampa, with an undergraduate science degree in Quantitative Economics & Econometrics, along with additional concentration in upper-level mathematics and statistics. He is currently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Finance at the university's Muma College of Business.
Prior to George's academic development, he spent more than six years within the construction and fabrication industry as a certified welder. He quickly rose in seniority to several foreman positions where he was able to leverage his trade expertise and leadership skills to successfully complete numerous large-scale projects involving industrial weld-metal overlay for various power-generating energy plants.
George's invaluable experience within the construction and fabrication industry, paired with his highly-developed analytical ability obtained through a rigorous curriculum of undergraduate and graduate economics, mathematics and finance provide him with a unique skillset to serve J.S. Held's most demanding analytical challenges.
