Vice President & Treasurer

Lisa was born in the US with Italian origins, also boasting Italian citizenship. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Marketing from Houston Baptist University in Texas before moving to Rome in 1987. Lisa’s work experience is rooted in the Finance departments of multinational companies, from Johnson & Johnson to Kantar Millward Brown, a market research firm part of WPP – world leader in marketing communications services. She is now collaborating in her husband’s business consultancy, Studio Spito & Associati, putting her international budgeting, reporting and controllership experience at the disposal of the firm’s larger clients.  She also is the firm’s delegate member and contact for International Practice Group (IPG) a non-profit association of independent lawyers, accountants, tax advisers and other professionals who co-operate to transact international business.

Lisa rejoined PWA after a long absence, and full of enthusiasm, she made herself available to be part of the leadership team.  She is also a Board member (the only woman) of International Practice Group, an international network of lawyers, tax advisors and accountants, where she is head of recruitment for accounting and audit firms. Her success recently culminated in her election as Woman of the Year 2017/18. This year she was nominated Vice President, adding to her existing role as Treasurer. We congratulate Lisa on her prestigious achievements!

Lisa enjoys travelling around the world, reading, dancing, combined with her enjoyment of the culture and beauty Rome has to offer.
