The Benefits of Employing a Virtual PA

Home » Case Studies » The Benefits of Employing a Virtual PA

“Our dedicated Designated PA, Anna, has been an invaluable support to all of us at Energex. Although Anna operates remotely, this has not impacted the seamless and consistent service. Anna is excellent at taking the initiative to find solutions to the many challenges that we throw at her. We view her as part of the team.

We have found the same commitment and quality of service from the Designated people that support us in providing accounting and marketing expertise.

The Designated business model is excellent for younger, growing companies like us as you get very high calibre of dedicated support personnel on a time commitment that works for you, so avoiding the fixed commitment of additional in-house hires.”

Our Client

Energex was founded in 2016 by five senior leaders from Morgan Stanley’s Commodities Trading Business who recognised a need in the energy sector for a fresh approach to strategic and commercial advisory services. Energex provides commercial expertise, advice and insights across the energy sector, from oil, gas and LNG and chemicals through to biofuels, environmental products, renewables and waste-to-value.

Our Challenge

Energex came to us in 2019 as they were rapidly growing and needed someone to come in and really hit the ground running. They were focused on bringing in someone to coordinate and organise the booking of their extensive travel itineraries, manage their expenses and sort out any licenses they might need.


Our Results

After just a short time the Energex team quickly realised the benefits of having a PA and the high level of output that could be achieved. They began handing over bigger tasks such as the management of overseas events and complex admin involved in dealing with non UK based companies. This all meant that the in house team were able to concentrate entirely on their job at hand and continue to grow the company. After proving the extremely high level of PA services we were able to offer, Energex have gone on to take on both our Marketing and Accounting services.

Why Energex Partners Chose Designated PA

Designated’s PAs understand the challenges a busy and growing company face and know how to alleviate the pressures. They are able to embed into the team and become an integral part of it. The high level of experience and flexibility they offer is invaluable.
