Under the sea! Sarah is a keen scuba diver and has dived all over the world
With over fifteen years’ experience in consulting, Sarah prides herself on her specialisation in finance transformation, business insights and strategic planning. Her primary focus is on financial planning and analysis and she brings experience from a broad range of different industries from insurance and wealth management, telcos and media through to global resources.
Sarah is a leader in Baringa’s CFO Advisory practice, working in partnership with CFOs and their Finance functions across industries to transform the way they operate. Sarah’s passion is helping clients to use the data around them to provide a clarity of thought and direction, enabling decision making and driving actions through insights. One of her proudest achievements is reimagining the way that a global telco reported their key metrics, highlighting inconsistencies in data comparisons that had previously been hidden.
Outside of work, most of Sarah’s time is taken up by her young family but she also endeavours to make the time to run regularly and read whenever she has a spare moment. One of her favourite activities is cultivating her son’s emerging love of books and seeing old favourite stories through his new eyes.
