Why did Sarah Albon make the Financial Power List 2018?
Albon was named in 16th position on the Accountancy Age Financial Power List 2018:
2018 has already been busy for The Insolvency Service. Following the collapse of Carillion, the Official Receiver will be looking into the company failure as well as any misconduct of directors, but there’s pressure on government to help prevent a domino effect of companies experiencing the same fate. Albon will be continuing to lead work this year on modernising the Insolvency Service’s service delivery, providing value for money services and achieving future financial stability – not easy goals to deliver in the current economic environment.
