PKF’s Jo Crosbie wins Executive Assistant of the Year 2022

PKF Sydney and Newcastle is celebrating the win of their very own Jo Crosbie, as the Accountant’s Daily Women in Finance Awards Executive / Personal Assistant of the Year for 2022.

Jo began with PKF in 2016, taking on the role of managing two of the busiest practitioners at the firm.

Since then, she has become an Executive Assistant to the Chair of PKF in Australia and now works closely with executives and leaders both locally and across the country.

Jo said these positions have provided her with many challenges and opportunities.

“Leaving the legal industry after 30 years was definitely going to take me out of my comfort zone, but it was certainly a challenge I was ready for,” Jo said.

“My time at PKF has presented me with many great opportunities, one being this award win. I couldn’t be more honored to have been named the Executive Assistant of the Year 2022, alongside my great team.”

Jo’s approach has been described as innovative and proactive, particularly throughout COVID-19 lockdowns.

The COVID-19 pandemic and remote working was a challenge for many, and Jo took on the role of ensuring her team could continue to work in what was an alien remote working situation.

It was Jo who was the calming voice when things weren’t going right both for clients, who were watching their businesses stall, and for our team who missed the collaborative environment they were used to.

PKF Director, Andrew Beattie said Jo is an integral part of their team.

“Jo knows every client that walks through the door. She knows their children’s names, their coffee order, and what makes them tick,” Andrew said.

“I can speak for myself and Chairman, Steve Meyn in saying that the team as a whole would not run the way it does without Jo. Her knowledge, strength, and compassion goes a long way in helping our team be the best.”

The Women in Finance awards recognise women leading the charge across the finance industry, awarding the best of the best for their outstanding contribution to the profession on a national scale.
