ESV's General Manager - Ashima Seth - Winner at SMSF and Accounting Awards
The achievements of ESV’s General Manager of Operations & Finance, Ashima Seth, have been recognised, as she won "Office Manager of the Year" at the inaugural SMSF and Accounting awards.
Many of you will know Ashima but you may not know just how integral she is to the success of ESV. Over the past 10 years she has led many successful projects and has played a major role in the strategic direction of the business. 2016/17 was a standout year as Ashima led our office refurbishment project. This was no ordinary refurb project – especially since the bulk of the work happened during the two-week Christmas break to minimise disruption to the business and clients.
The refresh of the premises was a key project for 2016/17 arising from our strategy to “rebuild our infrastructure.” As a firm, we recognised that the look and feel of our premises was not keeping pace with the development of our brand and market positioning. Our new office has provided a bright and inviting atmosphere; a place staff enjoy being and where we are excited to invite our clients.
As part of the refurb a roll-out of new IT and telephony equipment has enabled ESV to create an almost paperless work environment, as we work towards creating a more sustainable firm.
As a firm, we have seen this one initiative contribute significantly to the dynamics of our office as we continue to work and grow. The inaugural SMSF and Accounting Awards recognise individuals and businesses that are making their mark in SMSF and accounting advice by championing professionalism, quality advice and innovation. ESV are excited to be recognised in this field.
The winners were announced at a gala dinner at the Sofitel Sydney on 2nd November.
