Swiss takes over at PwC Eurofirms

Move aims to strengthen links between 20 European firms

Markus Neuhaus, CEO of PricewaterhouseCoopers Switzerland, has been appointed
as Senior Partner of
Eurofirms,
PwC’s continental European organisation. He will succeed Wolfgang Wagner in this
role while remaining as CEO of PwC Switzerland.

PwC Eurofirms, founded four years ago, links together 20 continental European
PwC firms. PwC said that having a CEO of one of the four largest territories as
the CEO of the region will strengthen and tighten the strategic and operational
alignment.

Neuhaus said: ‘By closely linking Eurofirms management with the national
management of European PwC member firms, we are striking the optimum balance
between integration and national flexibility.’

The change in leadership is taking place at a time of upheaval among the Big
Four firms in Europe. KPMG is currently merging a number of European practices,
including the UK, German and Dutch firms, to form a single practice, while
Deloitte recently merged its UK and Swiss practice.
