Leo Gonzalez (Fort Lauderdale) joined Crowe in 2010 as an Audit campus hire from Florida International University. Today, Leo is an Audit manager specializing in the banking industry and providing oversight to the engagement management process. Leo is also a committee member of our Latino People Resource Network (PRN). Our PRN teams provide a forum for networking and support in order to promote inclusion and mutualism within the firm. Crowe sponsors four People Resource Networks teams including African American, Asian, Gay and Lesbian Allies and Latino.

Q. How has Latino PRN supported your development?

A. I joined the Latino PRN when I first came to Crowe. It's a great way to get to know other Latino team members and participate in events such as the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting (ALPFA) National Conference. As a Latino PRN member, I had the opportunity to attend the ALPFA Conference for a second time this summer.

Q. What is your favorite part of the ALPFA Conference?
A. My favorite part is the career fair, which is a day full of energy and meeting future recruits. The students who attend the conference are the ones who are the most involved in their student chapter, so we have the chance to recruit some of the top students from all different schools in attendance. During this year's conference, there also were several takeaways I learned during accounting hot topics sessions and a presentation on strategic thought leadership.

Q. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
A. I'm an avid scuba diver and one of my favorite activities is catching lobsters or "bugs" as we affectionately refer to them during lobster mini-season in Florida. I'm also a craft beer enthusiast and make my own beer at home.

Q. Where in the world would you most like to travel and why?
A. Spain. My wife and I love tapas or small plate. Spain has a great tradition of going from one restaurant to the next and when you order a glass of wine you get a free small plate.
