Director - Crew & Concierge Ltd
20 years ago Sara decided on a career change that took her to numerous exotic locations and introduced her to a number of different people. She started in the yachting industry as a Stewardess – along her travels she earned a great reputation and made a home for herself in Palma, Mallorca.
Sara took some time out from yachting to pursue a business venture but found the sea beckoned to her so she returned to Palma to work on various boats, now as a Sous-Chef or Sole Chef – she also catered for various regattas around the Balearics.
In 2006, Sara started a family so took the opportunity to work onshore to find crew for some of the very yachts that she had worked on and gained so much experience. In April 2007 'Crew & Concierge' was born. Over the next four years the company grew until in 2011 Sara opened her first office. 2013 was an exciting and busy year for all at Crew & Concierge, in the April C&C became a UK based Company with Sara moving back to set up shop in England, enabling her to build relationships with local Maritime schools and select some of the great seamen that the UK provides.
Over ten years on Sara still remains as committed as ever and still enjoys bringing clients and crew together. Since her initial move, Sara has relocated to the beautiful City of Bath and has become established with some new team members celebrating 10 years of successful crew placement and client relationships.

Head Morale Coach
Barley joined the Crew and Concierge team 2 years ago and has had a solid career in chasing squirrels and pigeons, side eye stares and going fishing in the office bins for anything edible (or not). She loves to sit on her throne (the Yellow guest chair) overseeing targets (cuddles all day) and getting the girls back on track when they get distracted by her cuteness. Her favourite hobbies are sleeping, jumping onto laps, tummy rubs, pulling socks off feet and running away from the wind. But most of all she loves licking the face of any human and making sure everyone has enough Barley love to go around.
