Introducing Sara Hanks

We are delighted to welcome Sara Hanks, (QMS 1969 to 1976) onboard as a Patron of the AKS Foundation.

Sara studied Law at Oxford University and had a stellar career after leaving QMS. She joined a London law firm and later emigrated to the USA with her American husband, a China expert for the Defence Department. By the age of only 31 she had been appointed as Chief of the Office of International Corporate Finance in the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (equivalent to the London Stock Exchange) in Washington DC. 

Her success continued with a role as partner at one of the world’s largest law firms, Clifford Chance based in New York. As a corporate and securities attorney, Sara gained top-level experience of global industries including financial institutions, energy and technology companies. This expertise led to her appointment as General Counsel of the Congressional Oversight Panel, the overseer of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) during the depths of the financial crisis in 2009. In the course of this work on Capitol Hill, Sara gained a unique perspective on the consequences of government involvement in the financial markets. 
Now living in Virginia, Sara is co-founder and CEO of CrowdCheck, which provides due diligence, disclosure and compliance services for entrepreneurs, enabling investors to make informed investment decisions. 

We are delighted to have Sara on board.
