Head of tax gets managing partner role

Richard Collier-Keywood has been appointed managing partner of
PricewaterhouseCoopers, in the first of new senior partner Ian Powell’s key
appointments.

Collier-Keywood, 46, is currently head of tax and a member of the current
management board. He has a colourful background, having
helped
set up tax regimes for war-torn African countries
in the 1990s, and was one
of the four candidates for the senior partner job. He was admitted as a partner
in 1992 and is a barrister and fellow of the ICAEW.

He will start his new role on 1 July.

Powell said: ‘I’m delighted that Richard will be working with me as managing
partner. Richard has led the tax practice superbly over the last few years and I
know he will make a significant contribution to the leadership team in his new
role as well as continuing to serve some of our largest clients.’

Collier-Keywood said: ‘The firm is in great shape and we have a fantastic
opportunity to build on our achievements to date. I’m looking forward to working
with Ian to play my part in ensuring that we deliver consistently outstanding
service to our clients through attracting and retaining the best people.’

Further leadership announcements are set to be made in the near future.
