AMG was founded in 1997 by Alex McGothigan, building on years of experience in the financial services industry.
The success of this family run business is the result of three key elements: honesty, integrity and hardworking dedicated staff.
Alex has worked in the Financial Services since March 1979. He started his career with the Wesleyan, who are still one of the top UK companies in the industry, followed by a short time with Abbey Life. His main aim was always to provide his clients with the best possible advice, this could not be achieved by working for any specific company so AMG was founded in June 1997. He had always a keen interest in property renovation, rental and sales, so together with his son Daniel they purchased the Estate Agency Business in 2009.
Daniel joined the business in May 1998 and quickly established himself as a mortgage and protection specialist. He has become a prominent figure within the local industry and has brought a focus and vitality to AMG where he continues to work alongside his father, as a partner, with special responsibility as head of the Financial Planning Division. Together with his father Alex, he purchased the Estate Agency Business in 2009.
Anne worked with Alex in The Wesleyan & Abbey Life and was very much involved in the establishment of AMG. She has worked for the company since its inception and is responsible for all the financial affairs within AMG. She is also an integral part of the Management Team alongside Alex and Daniel.
Jim has worked in Financial Services since September 1983. He started his career with The Wesleyan and worked alongside Alex for a number of years. After a short time with Royal Liver, he joined AMG in October 1999. He performs a complementary role to the County Antrim based business, providing a service to our County Derry/Londonderry clients and those further afield.
Sharon started her career in Financial Planning in June 2002 and has worked for a wide variety of financial companies in England as well as in the North and South of Ireland. Sharon joined AMG in January 2010 and plays a key role in enabling Alex to meet the high achievement levels that he sets for himself and the company in general.
Katie, a sister of Alex's, joined AMG in November 2003. She is a key member of the AMG team. She organises the maintenance work with workmen and tenants, assists Anne in the rental transactions and many other tasks. She is widely known for her hospitality by all who call into the Ballymena office.
Janette was headhunted by Alex in 2001, but after four years in post she took a career break to start her family. Since returning to the company in January 2013, Janette's role has evolved to supporting Daniel, Alex and Jim in the Financial Planning Division.
