Sarah Olney Chief Financial Officer
Although Sarah had originally helped with the accounts during the early days of Distilled, she returned to the company as a Project Manager in July 2008, bringing the total number of staff into double figures, and tasked with keeping everyone else organised.
After studying English Literature at University of London, Sarah began her professional life as a bookseller before spending six years with Barclays Bank, and then eighteen months as an Account Manager for the charity ‘Arts & Business’.
She enjoys reading, knitting, and trying to do the Times Crossword. Pressed for a favourite book, she’ll tell you that she currently favours Nancy Mitford’s interwar comedy ‘The Pursuit of Love’.
Sarah is the Chairman of an opera company, where she sings with her husband Ben. It’s also where she met Duncan, and where Duncan met his wife Suzi.
