Using His Gifts
Georges Montillet, Executive Consultant
Georges has always had a heart for helping people. While he’s always done ministry work on a volunteer basis, he realized that he needed a career with earning potential. Hoping to find a career that would allow him to utilize his language talents, he enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Yale, then began leading exchange student trips to Egypt and Oman.
He enjoyed working with students and helping them develop meaningful relationships and careers, but the demands on his personal life were weighing on him. “The choice between family and a career was a hard line―it was one or the other, but not both.” He chose family.
While he was looking for a more family-friendly career, Georges’ friend and fellow Consultant, Mathieu LaPalm shared the Opportunity and his own Ambit story. Mathieu shared how he was able to work and still have plenty of time to spend with his family. “With a baby girl at home and another on the way, Ambit seemed like a dream come true,” Georges says.
Ambit has given Georges the freedom to spend more time with his family and in his local church. He has even been able to take his dream of writing a novel off the backburner. His family was not convinced that joining Ambit was a good idea, but they were still very supportive. Georges believes that if they had not been so encouraging, then he would not be where he is today.
As a Consultant, Georges does whatever he can to help his Customers understand everything at work in a deregulated energy market. He keeps it simple and helps them feel confident in the decisions they make. He prides himself on being committed to the success of others and building partnerships based on trust and hard work, and he wants to encourage new Consultants to do the same.
Being an Ambit Consultant has renewed Georges’ hope for the future. “A happy family, a successful career, bringing joy to others through volunteering, and taking a stab at being an author are now all possible in one lifetime.”
