George Gillis, CPA, CA
George Gillis has been helping business owners grow their business and reach their personal financial goals for over 25 years. He began his public practice in the early nineties and while working closely with clients he soon realized they were looking for much more than typical accounting services at the end of each year.
George began meeting many clients on a monthly basis and helping business owners to step outside their daily operations and work on their business as a whole. This philosophy of focusing on the client’s vision for the future of their business, and helping them take the steps to get there, has become the guiding philosophy of The Newport Group today.

In early 2018 he became a partner and now works along side George Gillis with direct clients in a number of different industries to develop the same close working relationship with our clients that The Newport Group prides itself on.
