Sophie Ferrari is the Head of Finance. Her team supports financial transitions for all new clients around the world and takes an active role throughout the financial stabilisation period thereafter.
Sophie ensures that everything runs smoothly at every stage of the working relationship. She liaises between client & IREP finance teams to ensure that seamless processes are in place, and to remedy any difficulties that may occur.
Sophie started her career in the UK, graduating with a degree in Finance before starting work with a local accounting firm. However, in 2013 she decided to swap the UK for sunny Dubai, taking on a Finance Analyst role spanning several regions. This first role was alongside future IREP founders Kenneth McCrae & Kamran Abbas.
Also in 2013, Sophie decided to further expand her financial acumen by undertaking an MBA in Finance at the University of Manchester. Completing it in 2017 the timing turned out to be perfect, as IREP was founded, and Sophie was able to take up her current role.
In her spare time — apart from spending time reading on the beaches of Dubai — Sophie adores travelling and considers herself a ‘foodie’. Wherever she goes she is sure to sample the local cuisine, as well as taking in the sights, sounds, and culture.
