Lim Kexin might very well be one of the most cheerful accountants out there and it’s a wonder how she does it, with the number of commitments she juggles. A senior tax manager at PwC Singapore, Lim is currently on secondment to PwC Indonesia and based in Jakarta. She is a council member of both the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants’ (ISCA) governing council — where she chairs its Young Professionals Advisory Committee — and the Singapore Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia.
A self-declared “serial volunteer”, Lim makes it a point to give back to the community as well. Having actively volunteered since the age of 17, she has worked with various organisations including the National Youth Council, Yellow Ribbon Project and YMCA.“I am always looking out for opportunities to make a positive difference,” she shares.
For her commendable efforts within and outside the workplace, Lim has received many awards and accolades. Among these are the titles of “Rising Star” at the Financial Times-RBS Coutts Women in Asia awards in 2010 and “Young Accountant of the Year” at the inaugural Singapore Accountancy Awards in 2014.
