Kim Sawyer founded organizations in the financial services and nonprofit sectors in the U.S. and Europe. In 1994, Kim created and served as President of The locator Services Group Ltd. (TLSG). By combining disruptive innovation with novel technology, TLSG recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed funds for Fortune 500 companies. Twice, Fortune identified TLSG as one of the 100 Fastest Growing Urban Businesses in America and was named Women's Business Enterprise of the Year by the Center for Women and Enterprise. In 2017, Kim sold TLSG to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC). Prior to founding TLSG, Kim was a practicing attorney in both the public and private sector.
While leading TLSG, Kim brought the concepts of entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and gender equality to Portugal by creating Connect to Success (C2S) in partnership with the US Embassy. This initiative filled a void for Portuguese women by providing mentorship, training programs and business networking opportunities for women owned businesses. C2S was recognized by the European Diversity Award as the Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Program of the Year.
Kim serves as an independent board member to Ethic A Wealth Bank. She also serves as a member of the Bank's Compliance, Audit and Risk Management Committee. Her consulting practice focuses on advising business leaders facing pivotal strategic decisions.
