Eddie has been a partner at Grant Thornton for the last five years but originally joined PwC as a graduate in the East Midlands, spending 20 years with PwC in its business restructuring practice.
The news comes on the back of five Partner admissions announced by PwC in the Midlands on 1 July.

“Adding his talent to our deals business across the Midlands comes at a critical time for our economy when it is vital that we recover rapidly from the impact of COVID-19.”
Rob Moran, partner and business restructuring leader for PwC in the Midlands, added: “We are delighted that Eddie is rejoining PwC. He is a well known and respected restructuring advisor and we’re delighted to be able to invest in our future growth ambitions with such a talented individual.
