Sarah Howson

Founder & Director at Strategic PA Recruitment & Strategic PA Network Founder

Sarah is a PA/EA professional with over twenty years of C Suite level experience. She began her journey straight from university assisting the CEO of a small start-up semiconductor company, before moving to a FTSE250 international oil and gas support services company, where she supported both the CEO and the CFO.

Noticing an opportunity to bring together like-minded assistants and being passionate about networking, Sarah founded what is now Strategic PA Network back in 2015. She is a Business Support profession ambassador and is hugely passionate about the role of the PA and EA. She’s created a vibrant, exciting network and in just a couple of years the network has gone from its infancy to being nominated for the Manchester PA Awards as ‘best external network’.

Sarah’s talent for building relationships, recruiting and connecting people, as well as her extensive EA experience is a great foundation for launching Strategic PA Recruitment, a company focused on placing professional career Executive and Personal Assistants, Chief of Staff and Office Managers into organisations that understand and truly value the Business Support function within a business.

Sarah lives in Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire with her husband and two young boys. She loves spending time outside and is a member of the National Trust frequenting Cliveden most weekends. Being able to support local charity Smart Works Reading is also a passion of hers, whenever time allows it, she helps where she can.
