Skarbek Associates, a consulting firm with offices in London and Singapore, has in recent months made two senior appointments. Sarah Myners has been named as Director of Legal Sector Operations in London, while Danielle Dunfield-Prayero has been promoted to Director of Operations in Asia-Pacific. 

Sarah Myners is a former City employment lawyer with over 12 years’ experience advising clients on major organisational change, complex business transfers, portfolio acquisitions and outsourcing arrangements. She brings to Skarbek’s clients her significant experience working with multiple sectors including legal, financial services, oil and gas, retail and housing, as well as not-for-profit organisations and charities. Whilst she supports all key services, Myners’ specialisms are transformational change, project management and capability building in the legal sector. 

Her appointment in this newly created role reflects, according to Paul Heugh, founder and CEO of Skarbek Associates, growing demand in the legal sector for strategy implementation consultancy. Myners holds a degree in law from Edinburgh University with a specialisation in employment law.

Danielle Dunfield-Prayero, who previously held leadership roles at investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, ING Investment Bank and BPCE International, has been tasked with heading up the firm’s Asia-Pacific operations. From Skarbek’s Singapore office, she has already begun work on several major strategy implementation projects for multinational corporates with Asian operations. 

Commenting on the senior appointments, Heugh said: “We are delighted Sarah has joined the Skarbek team; she has the experience and character to make things happen in a sector not used to the emerging pace of change. We are also pleased with Danielle’s promotion – she has an impeccable record and her team has quickly earned a reputation in the region for doing the extremely difficult work well.”

Established in 2012 in London, Skarbek Associates focuses on strategy execution for clients in the legal, FMCG, healthcare and financial services sectors, ranging from multi-national corporations to family-sized businesses. Services of the consulting firm include strategic alignment, transformational change, post M&A integration and project management. The firm’s name comes from Krystyna Skarbek, one of Britain’s most remarkable Special Operations Executive agents of second World War II, who through courage, determination and creativity achieved the seemingly impossible.
