Employee Spotlight: Alex Messina

Currently an Accounting Manager, Alex Messina has been with Pro Back Office for more than three years. He works closely with his clients overseeing staff accountants and bookkeepers, reviewing financial reports, processing month-end close activities, and producing financial statements. He enjoys working directly with business owners and client management by helping them with the strategic growth of their business. Seeing how his efforts help to achieve their business goals is what motivates him.

Alex previously worked with PBO Shareholder Scott Palka, and he was excited about the opportunity to work with him again at PBO. “PBO is great company that is in line with my professional and personal goals,” Alex said. “One of the proudest moments about working for PBO is when it was named as one of the top places to work in San Diego. It’s great to love where you work and its pretty amazing for others to recognize it as well.”

Growing up in San Diego, Alex takes full advantage of the great year-round weather by playing soccer. He’s played the sport since he was five and helped start the men’s club team at his alma mater of Cal State San Marcos. He’s also an avid world traveler and has been to Germany, Thailand, Mexico (Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada and Guadalajara), and Ecuador (Quito and Galapagos Islands). He looks forward to combining his two passions—soccer and travel—with plans to travel around the world watching and playing in various soccer events.
