The SMSF Professionals’ Association of Australia (SPAA) has scooped the pool at the Money Management Women in Financial Services event held in Sydney last night.
SPAA CEO/Managing Director Andrea Slattery was awarded Woman of the Year for 2014 and Marketing and Communications Manager Priscilla Monger walked away with the prize for the marketing and communications category.
Slattery won the award from a list of six highly credentialed finalists, with the judges saying it was in recognition of her “tireless work in raising the profile of SPAA, the SMSF sector and the entire superannuation industry”.
SPAA Chairman Peter Crump said: “All SPAA members understand and appreciate the commitment that Andrea brings to her role as CEO.
“So it is exciting and highly gratifying to see her recognised by her peers and win the highest honour awarded by Money Management.
“The awards, now in their second year, are a recognition of the growing role that women are rightly playing in our industry, and for Andrea to win not only reflects highly on her but the entire SPAA family.
“It was also excellent to see Priscilla win the marketing and communications award in recognition of her sterling efforts to use social media to raise SPAA’s profile, and in particular the Thunderclap campaign at the 2014 National Conference, which drew high praise from the judges.”
