Director, Accounting and Commissions
Petra Barone joined Private Advisor Group in February 2011 as a client service associate, transitioning to become the in-house accountant in January 2013. Petra brings more than 25 years of accounting experience to her role as Director of Accounting and Commissions.
Petra previously worked with Coopers & Lybrand—one of the “big eight” accounting firms—an experience that provided her with a diverse knowledge of various industries, with a focus on foreign banks and hospitals. She eventually left Coopers & Lybrand to become the general accounting and reporting manager for Häagen-Dazs. After her first daughter was born in 1996, Petra resigned from Häagen-Dazs to work on consulting projects. For the past 20 years, she has also worked part-time for a retirement consulting firm that provides third-party administration and retirement plan design.
Petra is an active volunteer, serving as a chairperson on several committees at her daughters’ school and in the community. She lives in Morristown, NJ, with her husband and their two teenage daughters.
