I'm Sarah Priester, a strategic Finance Director with over 15 years experience with small and medium sized businesses.
Virtually all of the owner managed businesses I've seen throughout my career (probably close to one hundred!) are run solely on the basis of gut instincts rather than factual numbers. The result tends to be companies that are falling way short of reaching their full potential. I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs, like you, get to grips with the numbers and use them to make informed strategic decisions. Whether you are at the startup phase or many years down the line I would love to help and see your company thrive!
As a bit of background....I started my career at KPMG working in audit, M&A and business advisory. I then advanced into various finance roles in the UK, The Netherlands and Switzerland. After becoming a Finance Director I moved into M&A working with tens of entrepreneurs selling their businesses. In summary, I'm a classically trained chartered accountant (ACA and member of The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) with plenty of commercial, strategic and mergers & acquisitions experience. From start-up to sale I am ready to support you with financial and strategic guidance.
