“The ‘School of Life’ got me to Partner. To be a successful business we need to think more broadly about skills and where they come from”

As a People in Deals specialist Partner Sarah works with her clients to ensure that the critical people and cultural aspects of the merger, acquisition or divestment are recognised and addressed upfront. Sarah wants the deal to be the best it can be by enabling people within the merged organisations to be the best they can be. This runs through the deal value creation plan, due diligence and subsequent execution and integration.

Prior to leading the UK Tax People and Organisation practice, Sarah was the PwC UK Chief People Officer for the Deals Line of Service, where she was responsible for setting and delivering the UK People Strategy and leading the people aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
