Mazars has appointed Sarah Lord as a Financial Planning Partner in is London office. She becomes a Partner at the firm having left Killik & Co – bringing more than a decade of Private Clients experience to the role in a time of increasing demand.

Global consulting firm Mazars has announced the hiring of Sarah Lord as a Financial Planning Partner in its London office. The company saw revenues grow by 7% last year to £160 million, and as demand looks set to continue growing, Lord will be tasked with broadening the firm’s Financial Planning and Private Client business, amid the increased economic uncertainty surrounding the implementation of Brexit, a cause for concern for businesses and individuals on both sides of the channel.

Sarah Lord was most recently a Partner at investment consultancy Killik & Co, where since 2012 she was responsible for leading, and developing the Chartered Financial Planning practice. The role followed over a decade of senior positions including Director at Walker Crips Wealth Management, and Client Integration Director at PIFC Consulting. Lord holds a Bachelor’s degree in Medical Biochemistry obtained at the University of Leeds, and is a board member for both the Wealth Consultancy and the Personal Finance Society.

Her experience will add value to the services we already deliver for our clients.”

Remarking on her appointment, Lord said, “I am really looking forward to working with Mazars, a leading name in the market. I am excited by the opportunity to work with the ambitious Financial Planning team and further build upon the firm’s growing reputation in the Entrepreneurial Business and Private Client (EBPC) area.”

The company recently reappointed its CEO and expanded its executive team in order to cope with the continuing growth of its global operations, while Mazars’ public profile received a further boost from the renewal of their sponsorship with the Yorkshire County Cricket team.
