Sally Lavis, Compliance and Administration Associate Manager
28 July 2017
I joined the PMG team at the end of 2016. I am excited to add value with my extensive administrative experience, to a growing, successful team. Both my organisational skills and great time management are highly appreciated by the team and our clients!
What were your previous roles?
Prior to starting with PMG, I immigrated from South Africa in 2007 and took up a position at KPMG Chartered Accountants as a personal assistant to two Partners, two directors, various managers, and a rapidly growing team of accountants. My key responsibilities included risk management administration, administration of office systems and processes, company office administration, maintenance of a large client database, as well as the role of a personal assistant.
How did you hear about PMG?
Property Managers Group was a client of KPMG and I was involved in a few pieces of work for PMG. I also kept in touch with Nigel Lowe, PMG Chief Financial Officer when he moved across from KPMG to PMG.
What attracted you to working with PMG?
Nigel had spoken about the great team environment, and the directors’ enthusiasm, drive, and professionalism. I wanted to be part of a hardworking, high performing team with good values and genuine relationships with its clients.
What do you bring to the PMG team?
The AML /CFT space is rapidly changing and I aim to a provide our investors with a simple step-by-step process to getting compliant. I always aim to make it easier for our customers to do business with us by providing efficient and high-quality service.
What are you passionate about?
I love hanging out with my children (Matt 23 and Que-ann 19) – whether it be going out for breakfast together on a Saturday morning or having them over for dinner and board games. I love my sport (hockey, netball, yoga, lawn bowls) and being outdoors. In summer, most evenings you will find me walking up the Mount.
