Former Deloitte partner and Engage Super Audits founder Jo Hurley has been appointed business development manager for specialist administration and audit firm Seamless SMSF.
Hurley brings nearly 25 years of experience to the Victorian-based firm, having most recently been SMSF assurance and advisory partner at accounting firm Deloitte. She left this role in February 2018 to take a career break and the new role marks her return to the sector.
Prior to her last position in the industry, she established Engage Super Audits, which was purchased by Deloitte in July 2015.
Her appointment represents part of Seamless SMSF’s business expansion plans to service 30,000 funds by 2022, as reported by selfmanagedsuper earlier this year.
Seamless chief executive Mike Henry described Hurley as driven, professional, respectful and someone who sets high standards, and added his firm is thrilled about her appointment.
“To have a person so well regarded in the SMSF industry join our team is exciting given the ambitious targets we’ve set ours,” Henry said.
“In such uncertain times, taking an aggressive approach to access accounting and financial planning firms that need our help requires the right people. Jo working in our amazing sales team will be great for the business and clients.”
Hurley said she was excited about the opportunity she has been afforded to once again play a significant role in the SMSF sector.
“Seamless SMSF is an outstanding business and Australia’s leading SMSF administration and audit firm. I am really looking forward to helping the business achieve significant growth and success,” she said.
“I have always had a strong drive to make a positive contribution to the SMSF industry, enjoying the opportunity to work with like-minded people with a similar passion to change our industry for the better.
“I am really impressed with the culture and values Mike has instilled in the Seamless SMSF team, and this role represents the perfect opportunity for me to return to an industry I know and love.”
