Head of Finance and Facilities
Judith graduated in South Korea with a degree in International Trade and since then has developed her passion for accounting and numbers through a postgraduate diploma and then a master’s degree from the University of Western Sydney. Judith is a qualified CPA and Fellow of the Institute of Public Accountants as well as a registered Tax Agent.
Following a career in consulting, Judith joined UNSW Global as the organisation was going through a major transition and quickly expanded her role from Financial Controller to take on the responsibility as Head of Finance. Judith is also responsible for the physical infrastructure of the organisation, ensuring that there is sufficient and appropriate space and facilities to support students.
‘Developing healthy and productive business partnerships is dependent upon a good understanding of the business and our broader operating environment, and that’s how I support the work of the management team.’
Judith’s enthusiasm for international education stems from her own background and accomplishments since arriving from Korea to Australia as an English student and fresh graduate some years ago. Her natural abilities for analysing and translating data and complex information is used to great effect in helping advise and steer the organisation. Judith also keeps informed of trends and developments in different global markets, in order to quickly and accurately present and assess opportunities and risks.
In Judith’s leisure time, like many of her colleagues, she also loves to travel, and often visits Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore looking for unusual and unique clothes, shoes and handbags, indulging her love of fashion.
