Geremy Thomas CEO and Founder of George Banco Ltd
Welcome to the George Banco ‘Meet the Team’ element of our blog.
Over the coming weeks we will be looking at the various team members that make George Banco tick and we start with the former CEO and Founder of George Banco Ltd, Geremy Thomas.
A serial entrepreneur with a successful track record in the telecommunication, tourism and environmental service industries, Geremy started back in the 1980’s when he co-founded the Carphone Group Plc and helped to develop the group to exceed 10% market share before the company was sold to Cable and Wireless.
In 1994, after some smaller ventures, Geremy founded PNC Telecom PLC where, as CEO he guided the company through more than 6 years of success.
In 2006 Geremy Thomas then invested in the cutting edge consumer technical support company Talk Me Through It (TMTI) Ltd.
TMTI Ltd, under the leadership and expertise of his brother Crispin Thomas grew to become one of the most successful telephone and online technical support companies of all time due to the innovative way in which they approached customer support.
TMTI work with technical brands to provide training and support to the thousands of consumers buying the products, dealing with everything from simple billing enquiries to in depth product training. They also help carry out pre product testing to ensure it is fit for purpose when it hits the public.
Geremy remained a director with TMTI until 2013 when he decided to take a step back to focus on other ventures, leaving Crispin to continue the successful development of the family business to the present day.

During his time with the TMTI Group Geremy also developed a new and separate venture called Carbon Managers.com, an online portal that allows companies to offset their carbon footprint using various techniques.
Carbon Managers has become highly successful and can help a company to reduce its CO2 emissions as well as help to identify potential huge cash savings as a result.

In 2011 Geremy wanted to do something that encompassed one of his favourite past-times, Clay Pigeon Shooting, with one of his favourite places, Antigua. This is where he developed Antigua Clays Ltd, a world class clay pigeon shooting school on the stunning Caribbean Island.
That brings us right up to the current day and George Banco Ltd.
In 2013 Geremy, together with his son George Thomas, financial heavyweight Marc Howells, and a little later on, Andy Dewhurst the founder of Tesco Bank, created George Banco Ltd. A direct lender set up to provide unsecured Personal loans and Guarantor loans to those with a poor credit rating.
In the last two years George Banco Ltd has gone from strength to strength, taking on new staff at their headquarters in the beautiful Somerset countryside and constantly developing their financial products in tune with their customer’s needs.
Geremy is always looking to innovate with the way in which his companies approach and tackle the bigger issues, providing simple but highly effective solutions to make everyday life that little bit more manageable.
Non-Standard Financial acquired George Banco Ltd in August 2017 allowing Geremy to move on to new ventures.
