We’re proud to shine a spotlight on Coordinator Joe Bailey this month. A Managing Director within EY’s Consulting practice, he has served the technology, media and telecommunications industry since 2004. Among his primary job responsibilities are serving as an ad tech industry account and engagements leader as well as a subject matter resource in the areas of risks to the digital advertising ecosystem, and uses data science analytics to inform decision making.
Joe holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance and Master of Accounting degree with a concentration in Taxation from Florida State University. He is a CPA, Certified Information Systems Auditor and Notary Public.
Another role that Joe is proud to hold is as the executive lead over select EY priority community engagement initiatives. As such, he coordinates the United Way Suncoast annual campaign for the 650+ employees in the EY Tampa office. He and his campaign committee coordinate a variety of fun events including a campaign kickoff at Hula Bay, international potluck and chili cookoff during their latest campaign. The chili cookoff is a popular event with chefs vying for bragging rights and the honor of their name on the commemorative plaque hanging in the office. The events promote fun and camaraderie while raising money and giving employees the opportunity to learn more about United Way’s mission.
Although this was Joe’s first year as executive lead, he’s no stranger to United Way Suncoast. A regular donor, he joined the newly formed Admiral Society, one of United Way Suncoast’s leadership societies, and says he is, “excited for the opportunity to increase my investment in our community as a new member.” He also volunteers with our Summer Care program and on the Community Investment committee.
Joe was first introduced to United Way through Emery Ivery, former chief impact officer, observing the depth of knowledge and influence he brought to the organization and community. His confidence in UWS and our ability to manage donor dollars has been further strengthened by his community work with Kari Goetz, chief development and marketing officer. Joe expresses his with that, “other people were more aware of the depth of services UWS provides, the countless organizations impacted by UWS and the efficiency through which UWS delivers services into the community through donor dollars.”
In addition to his work with United Way, Joe wears many other hats. He serves as a board and committee member for other local non-profits, is part of the Leadership Tampa Bay class of 2023, a seasoned minister and wedding officiant and active in the Tampa Bay fitness community participating in multiple marathons and triathlons.
We’re grateful for Joe and his boundless enthusiasm and energy.
