A PKF publication outlining relevant business issues for you
The year 2023 has been evolutionary for PKF Global, as our brand revitalisation rollout progresses worldwide. This update is far more than a logo replacement; it embodies our vitality, distinctive personality and core values that portray the strength of the PKF Global network of over 220 members operating under the PKF brand in 150 countries across five regions. Our redesigned logo reflects the unity of the PKF family of member firms, working collectively to provide consistent support to our clients, our teams and the communities in which we operate. The future is promising, and we are excited about the growth trajectory of the group as we strive for transformative change.
Since our establishment in 1977, our Newcastle office has played a leading role in the local community and we are delighted to this year partner with the nib Newcastle Knights. This partnership showcases our brands’ deep connection with the Hunter and our commitment to community values. We have enjoyed celebrating the highs and lows of the Knights this NRL season, both the Novocastrians and our Sydneysiders are delighted to be “Proud Knights Fans”.
There is no better way to enter the new financial year full of vigour than celebrating the year that was at our PKF Sydney and Newcastle End of Financial Year Ball, held at Royal Randwick Racecourse. With a room full of 250 staff and their partners dressed in their finest evening attire, we looked back on the year that was and celebrated remarkable achievements firmwide. We recognised our high achievers and finished off with some moving and shaking – of course it wouldn’t be a PKF Ball if the Chair of PKF Australia, Steve Meyn, didn’t take the stage again to reprise “Sweet Caroline!”. A special congratulations to our Mark Lonnon Employee of the Year, Sangeetha Ravisankar - our amazing Data Analytics and Business Intelligence specialist. Sangeetha’s hard work and dedication have delivered outstanding results for her team and the wider firm, we are proud to have Sangeetha as part of our team and appreciate the opportunity to recognise her continued excellence.
Finally, we are proud to announce our Newcastle Breast Care Breakfast will be returning in October. This event has been a long-standing tradition in the Hunter region, having started 17 years ago in memory of our former partner’s wife tragically taken by breast cancer. In 2022, we raised over $26, 000 for the Hunter Breast Care Nurses and we’ll strive to exceed this target at this year’s event.
