Based in the West Australian wheatbelt town of Moora, Ms Snell, executive director at RSM thanked her family and sponsors within RSM for supporting her on her journey.

In addition to her role as an executive director which requires her to travel extensively whilst managing a number of offices, Ms Snell also manages the family farming business with her husband and has raised three children.


“To me, this award represents an acknowledgement of our firm’s effort in supporting and developing women in our firm.  

We have a long legacy, we are 96 years old, but in more recent years we have consciously looked at ways to support women in senior roles, including developing a comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion Program as part of our 2020 strategy.

We are only part way through this journey but have already made a difference – we have tackled unconscious bias; developed a program for mentoring females and are fast tracking high performing women into leadership roles.”

Jamie O’Rourke, national chairman, RSM Australia, said,

“It was a privilege to celebrate this award with Judy and the RSM team on the night. Being recognised as winners and finalists in these awards is an honour. As Judy is chair of our Diversity taskforce, I am particularly delighted that she has been recognised as this award is testament to the leadership she demonstrates both within our firm and the broader community.”

Ms Snell was also a finalist for the Regional Professional of the Year and Jessica Olivier, principal at RSM, was a finalist in the Principal of the Year category.
