PwC invests in Midlands team with partner and director promotions

PwC is investing in the next generation of business leaders in the Midlands with the admission of three new partners and 16 directors across its deals, audit, tax, risk, technology & investment and consulting practices.

Across the Midlands business there has been a further 270 promotions to senior manager, manager and senior associate posts, making the total number of promotions 289.

The new cohort also reflects rapidly growing client demand in areas such as ESG, with partners increasingly focused on Net Zero strategy, diversity and inclusion priorities, corporate governance, and transformation.

Last month, PwC announced plans to invest $1.2bn in the UK over the next three to four years, in areas including ESG and technology, with a focus on creating 4,000 new jobs nationally, expanding the business from 22,000 to 26,000.

Matthew Hammond, PwC’s Midlands region leader, said: “I’m delighted to be welcoming our new partners and directors into our Midlands business. We are committed to investing in the future of our business and our new promotees bring sector expertise, local and international experiences as well as the diverse skills we need to continue to grow sustainably while supporting our clients and people as they respond to unique challenges and opportunities.”
