My passion for business led me to pursue a career first in accountancy¸ and later in auditing¸ branching out into an eventual specialisation in taxation.
Through accountancy and its related fields¸ such as taxation¸ consulting¸ risk management and corporate governance¸ I was able to grow within the financial services sector that is the cornerstone of the Maltese economic system. After successfully completing the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation with the Chartered Institute of Taxation (UK)¸ I sought to expand my expertise and to this end I am presently reading for a Masters degree in financial services.
I was appointed partner two years ago¸ making my mark as the first female partner since the partnership was originally set up 25 years ago. This was an important step in my professional career¸ although it invariably came flanked with increased responsibilities. My vision is to continue delivering high quality services as a means to the end of making a difference in the success story of our clients¸ people and communities.
I believe that the ‘tone at the top’ is an important driver of audit quality. PKF has the depth and breadth to help businesses compete effectively and successfully locally¸ internationally and across-borders. Our commitment to professionalism¸ quality¸ integrity and innovation combined with global reach have realised substantial growth in our 25-year history. We are passionate about being more than just service providers to our clients.
Our business model is based on each partner’s commitment to deliver high quality business advice to our clients with a personal touch. We all enjoy what we do¸ and that attitude tends to be infectious with our staff. We are a fast growing¸ progressive
