Grants Co-Ordinator and Correspondent
Laura Montgomery is the Grants Coordinator and Correspondent for the Foundation. She is also the Managing Director of the Ellis Campbell Group and is the fifth generation of this 140 year old family owned property investment office.
Laura qualified as a solicitor in 2005 working in the Real Estate Finance department of Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP. She joined the Ellis Campbell Group in 2007 and co-founded C2 Capital Limited with Julian Carey in 2009, a commercial property investment and asset management business and she sits on the Investment Committee for the C2 Capital Underwriting Funds.
Laura is passionate about the work of the Foundation and the truly transformational projects that the Foundation is supporting. Her motivation springs from the belief that it only takes one person or event to change the course of someone’s life from one of zero ambition and hope to one of self-belief and passion; all of the amazing organisations that the Foundation supports are transformational because they are enabling this. Laura feels privileged to meet such inspiring, fearless and determined people through the course of her work with the Foundation. Laura is also Trustee for an unrelated family Trust and sits on the fundraising advisory committee for the charity Build It International.
Laura is married with three beautiful young daughters and spends most of her spare time enjoying her family both at home in London and in her husband’s family home in Ireland.
