‘Founding SOL International Ltd was the next natural progression in my career thanks to unwavering commitment from my clients and support from so many. I am delighted to now be able to serve clients under my own firm where dedication to excellence and client needs will continue to remain key.
The name SOL is special and will always serve as a reminder of why we all do what we do, our motivation and driving force and what truly matters: family. SOL stands for Sarah Omar Lina. Those of you who know me know that first and foremost I am blessed to be mother to Omar and Lina. All that I do I do for them.
SOL International Ltd is firmly grounded and founded on family principles and seeks to treat its clientele as part of the family.’
