2016 MANCHESTER PA OF THE YEAR
Amanda has worked for over 3 years at FRP Advisory as a PA supporting 4 partners and 2 directors. She has watched the company double in size and due to her office wide support she is now also the office coordinator. Her love for FRP Advisory is unquestionable and as well as being an excellent ambassador and the face of the office with the other PAs, she regularly networks with the company’s clients at corporate events.
Along with her work at FRP Advisory, Amanda is an active member of the Manchester PA Network. She regularly attends events and shares details of network activities on social media. If ever anyone is having a low day, a gif from Amanda will surely cheer them up - she is a cheerleader for everyone she meets.

Michaela has supported the CEO of CVS since June 2015 and it is clear that they have a lot of respect for each other in their respective roles. He spoke very passionately about the importance of the PA role within the business and feels very confident that in Michaela, he has found someone who he feels confident to support him as a true extension to his own role.
Michaela always has a positive, mature and professional attitude and has made a considerable impact in her time at CVS. She has worked to develop a relationship with the Board of Directors and act an an extension for the Board and the CEO so people feel they have a direct link to them through her.
