Earlier in his career, Monty was an officer in British Army for 14 years. His principal accomplishments included training 700 British and Canadian troops in preparation for deployment to Afghanistan, managing 160 Iraqi personnel and a $16 million fleet of vehicles, and leading 40 British soldiers deployed in Iraq. Monty graduated from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2003 and obtained a Chartered Manager (CMgr) designation in 2014.
