Sarah Bennett

Director, Citi

Sarah is the Chief Administrative Officer of EMEA Risk, reporting to the EMEA Chief Risk Officer.

Sarah’s career at Citi has spanned 29 years from when she originally started at Salomon Brothers as a Credit Associate and she has held global and regional roles within Citi’s independent Risk group.
