About Sarah Hunt

Sarah established EquityFD in 2000, with EquityFC, EquityInterim and EquityChair in the following years.

She started life in Manchester (her support for Manchester United continues through thick and thin!) and then moved to London to study Law at University. With little thought as to whether a career as a City lawyer with what is now CMS actually suited her, she qualified as a solicitor and spent 5 years realising that it didn’t!

There then followed a far more rewarding and fulfilling 6 year period at Michael Page in their City division, running a team placing senior finance professionals into banking and FS clients.

It was the combination of these two initial quite diverse career choices that gave Sarah both the knowledge and the inspiration to go out and set up her own business, which she did in 2000 with backing from Invex Capital. The core tenet of the business remains the same today; spending the time to develop a real network of candidates, understanding not just what they can do, but what they want to do, and partnering them with businesses whose aspirations for growth and value match theirs.

Sarah enjoys spending time trying to ensure that the network works for everyone in it. She is at the centre of marketing activities, leading on the many events we take part in or host, in particular our annual summit, The Contemporary FD, our regular roundtable series, the Scale Up CFO and our relationship with the BVCA and with our strategic partners, Evelyn Partners.

Outside of work, Sarah enjoys photography (as is evident with any trip to our offices!), travelling, skiing, football and all forms of performing arts.
