Specialist expertise

Sarah is a Senior Manager in Quantuma LLP’s North West team, delivering lead advisory and business restructuring mandates for SMEs.

Sarah is a highly motivated, confident, and commercially minded individual, with a strong academic background and holds a 1st class honours degree in Industrial Economics from the University of Nottingham.

She has had a broad and diversified career. With close to 10 years’ experience within one of the Big Four Financial Services firms, Sarah has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to providing clients with a range of restructuring services. These include strategic business reviews, accelerated disposals, financial restructurings, pensions advisory, cash flow management and formal insolvency appointments.

She has experience in a variety of sectors including automotive, pharmaceutical, property, hospitality, healthcare and retail, largely focused on SMEs and FTSE 100s. 

In more recent times, Sarah has managed a portfolio of high risk, high value, complex and distressed debt on behalf of a fast growing peer to peer lender, which allows private and institutional investors to lend money directly to SMEs. Here she gained valuable insight into this form of alternative lending, including investor relations, risk management and loss mitigation.
