Two Price Waterhouse partners have been appointed to lead the Oscar balloting process for the annual Academy Awards ceremony on 23 March.
Greg Garrison and Liza Pierozzi, who are both partners in the firm’s Entertainment, Media and Communications Group will oversee the Academy Awards’ tabulation process, and on the day of the Awards will provide presenters with the sealed envelopes containing the winners’ names. PW has been involved in the Academy balloting process for the last 70 years and is keen for its partners to continue the tradition. Pierozzi is the first female partner to join the ballot team. She has worked with the Price Waterhouse EMC team for 13 years and given business advice to the Academy for 11 years.
