Sacha Romanovitch, CEO of leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP, has been included in City A.M.'s Power 100 Women list.
The Power 100 Women list, which is unranked, is compiled from research conducted by the City A.M. team and based on nominations made by companies in the city. It includes CEOs, entrepreneurs, economists and millennials, as well as those working in banking and finance, investment, law, technology and telecoms, property, and accountancy.
The women were chosen based on a number of qualitative characteristics, including the strength and power of position, number of people they manage, and wider impact on the sector.
Commenting on her inclusion in the list Sacha Romanovitch, CEO of Grant Thornton UK LLP said "I am honoured to be recognised alongside the amazing other business women included on this list. Our research shows the benefits businesses can reap from having female executives and this list demonstrates the enormous talent pool available in the City. I hope that seeing the achievements of those listed inspires both young women, and men, into business and to try and unleash their full potential."
To honour the launch of the Power 100 Women franchise, the City A.M. newspaper was guest-edited by Jayne-Anne Ghadia on Wednesday 18th May.
Commenting on the list, Jayne-Anne Gadhia said “It is fantastic to see City A.M. celebrating the considerable talent of London’s power women – from the lawyers and accountants to the entrepreneurs and executives, all driving innovation and economic growth. By holding a light to their achievements, we amplify the positive impact that these fantastic role models have on men and women alike."
Supporting the initiative, Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities, Nicky Morgan, said “This inaugural Power 100 Women list is a really exciting measure of the growing recognition of women within the City. Having women in these prominent positions means that companies benefit from an enormous wealth of female talent as well as ensuring visible working role models for the next generation of girls.
“We have already come a long way but can still do more to make sure women everywhere are able to fulfil their potential. It is women like these, who are performing at the top of their game, and the men who work alongside them, who are in a position to make this possible throughout the UK at every level.”
