By Joey Broccolo, CFE
When I learned Ashley Stone was leaving ACFE and the Chapter Development Manager role would be opened internally, I was excited to apply. I’ve been with ACFE for almost 13 years, 11 of them as the Events Coordinator, and have had the pleasure of learning from and connecting with ACFE members across the globe.
A strength of mine is developing relationships with our members, and I’m excited to work with you and be your advocate to help your chapter be successful. I’ve met many of you at ACFE conferences either in the U.S. or aboard, or we’ve worked together if your city has hosted an ACFE seminar. For those of you I haven’t met yet, I look forward to becoming your partner in the growth of your chapter.
Since I will learn more about you, I thought it might be helpful to share a little about me. I have lived in Austin most of my life, but my family has roots in Chicago, which is why I’m a fan of Chicago area sports teams (Cubs in baseball and Bears in American football). Growing up I was very active in all sports and attained a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
My wife, Melissa Broccolo, is the Certification Manager at ACFE and we have two beautiful daughters (Mia and Lily) that keep me busy. In my free time, I enjoy playing pool (billiards), watching movies and gardening.
ACFE has been my professional home for nearly 13 years and I’m eager to embark on a new journey with ACFE in helping you develop your chapter.
