The Importance of Company Director Searches: The Patisserie Valerie Scandal

In September 2021 Grant Thornton, the financial auditing company of Patisserie Valerie were fined £2.3m over their role in the collapse of the popular café chain.

As far back as early 2018 the CEO, non-exec director and finance director cashed in almost £6m of shares at a time when competitors were folding. By October of the same year this had increased to around £13m, and accounting irregularities were starting to come to light leading to the collapse of the company and the arrest of a number of directors and the CEO for fraud.

This case highlights the importance of thoroughly checking out company directors you come into contact with and understanding their history to reduce exposure to risk and bad actors.
