About Kirsty Sandwell

Kirsty’s RSM journey started in 2001, when she joined the firm’s new merger and acquisition (M&A) team and swiftly made partner in 2006, due to her expertise, knowledge, and leadership skills. Kirsty has extensive experience of advising clients on complex deals and transactions. 

Kirsty has held senior leadership roles at RSM for over 14 years and has been responsible for strategically growing RSM’s advisory services. She is also passionate about developing and inspiring her team to achieve their personal and professional goals.

‘I relish the challenges bought about by working in a fast paced and dynamic profession. I enjoy seeing the business and my team develop themselves in order to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients.’ 

Outside of work, Kirsty is a keen golfer, yogi and servant to her pups, Rey and Solo. She is also a big science fiction and fantasy fan. Kirsty is passionate about equality of opportunity and inclusion and is proud of securing RSM’s backing for the European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA), an organisation she became involved with as a caddy for her best friend, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, 15 years ago.
