PwC UK promotes 63 to partner — here are the names

Big Four consulting firm PwC has promoted 63 new partners, with its deals practice receiving the lion’s share of the new partners in a booming M&A market.

The firm boosted the number of equity partners it promoted by nearly 10%, up from 58 last year.

PwC has added 18 partners in its deals team, representing nearly a third of the total cohort, in what the firm said was a reflection of a strong transactional market.

Forty-one percent of the new partners are women and 13% are from an ethnic minority background, the firm said in a 24 June statement.

When the promotions take effect on 1 July, 23% of the firm’s partners will be female and 11% from an ethnic minority background.

PwC has a target of 30% female partners and 15% ethnic minority background partners by 2025.

Last week the firm said it planned to invest $1.2bn in the UK over the next three-to-four years, with plans to create 4,000 new jobs, boosting its headcount from 22,000 to 26,000.

PwC UK’s chair and senior partner Kevin Ellis said: “The role of leaders has never been more important and, as we look ahead, these new appointments will further strengthen our partnership.
