Sharon is our office oracle – the go to person for all non-marketing matters. She’s also our financial wizard – having studied Economics at LSE (the London School of Economics) and gained a PGCE at the Institute of Education – she looks after our accounts, invoices and all things fiscal. And keeps us all in line administratively otherwise we risk a detention (the teachers training leaves a lasting scar).
In a previous life, she was a vice-president at Lehman Brothers from 1985 to 1996 (yes – that Lehman), where she mainly worked with Eurobond sales – dealing with lots of very big numbers and shouty men wearing braces among other things! After a short career break to raise a couple of tiny humans, now not so tiny, Sharon was enticed to join Coussins Associates in 1999 on the promise that she didn’t have to deal with any temper tantrums or nappies! We’re not sure we kept both of those promises.
Perhaps Sharon’s most crucial role at Coussins is that of Birthday Tsar – she never forgets a birthday and always ensures there’s candles, presents and cake. Always cake.
