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

PKF Sydney and Newcastle is excited to announce their own Jo Crosbie as the Accountant’s Daily Women in Finance Awards Executive / Personal Assistant of the Year 2022.

Jo began with PKF back in 2016, taking on the role of managing two of the busiest practitioners at the firm. Since then, she has become the Executive Assistant to the Chair of PKF in Australia, and now works closely with executives and leaders both locally and across the country.

“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.” said Jo.

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 is innovative and proactive. If she can’t find something she needs, she’ll create it. 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.

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

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

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.
