Anita Waite’s PA/Office Manager career has spanned over 3 decades and she is currently working as the Office Manager for the Property Asset Management department of Knight Frank LLP. She has been ‘organising’ the office and staff for this department for more than 10 years and has worked for Knight Frank for in excess of 13.
Anita first became involved in the London PA Awards in 2015 where she was the ‘Support’ person to the Champion of the Mentor and Support Award. To her surprise, she found out that her colleagues had actually voted for her in this category, she was then shortlisted and then went on to win.
This first-hand knowledge of the awards process, together with the extreme pride in having colleagues recognise your efforts, really motivated her to take a more active role in the PA Awards 2016 in order to spread the word amongst the PA community to encourage as many people as possible to vote for their PA’s. PA’s are often referred to as the ‘backbone’ of a company and, therefore, she strongly believes that they should get the recognition they deserve.
