In 2008, Justin Eve was a director at PwC in Melbourne, trying to make partner but being faced with a string of career-setbacks. After a great deal of hard work and preparation, Mr Eve was given the opportunity to become partner of risk and control solutions for PwC in Perth. He and his family embraced the opportunity and by 2009 settled in Perth. Since becoming partner in 2009, Mr Eve has overseen a doubling of the risk and controls team’s staff to 55 in what is now a $10 million business. The business, which helps clients protect and enhance the value of their investments, aims to double its staff again by 2016. Mr Eve’s personal portfolio has also thrived, with an increase in revenue of 70 per cent between the 2010 and 2011 financial year. The risk and control solutions team has established two new business lines within the group – fraud and forensics and risk, and capital markets, both of which are already million dollar businesses and growing rapidly. Mr Eve recently won one of four national CEO awards for his performance as partner at risk and control solutions. A strong believer in empowering the less fortunate, Mr Eve walked the gruelling Kokoda Trek in Papua New Guinea last year to raise money for Partners in Health, an NFP organisation. His group raised $11,000 for Partners in Health, which helps 2 million of the world’s poorest people.
