Sarah Owen-Vandersluis

I grew up in a rural part of Canada, leaving home at the age of 17 to attend the London School of Economics. I excelled academically, achieving a first (the only women in my class to do so) and then undertaking a PhD.

I joined KPMG in 2005 as an analyst. I was attracted by the range of consulting projects, the opportunity to add value specifically to the public sector through Government consulting – and because all of my interviewers at every stage were women.

Since 2005, I have led large strategy consulting projects focused on helping Government better leverage private sector capabilities (e.g. through joint ventures or improved contracting)

From 2014-2017 I was based in Spain, where I had the privilege of working as the Strategy lead for KPMG’s Global Deputy Chairman.

I have been a Partner since 2014, focused on Public Sector and Infrastructure Strategy. Since earlier this year, I am also the Lead for Future Mobility.
