PwC appoints 80 new partners

PwC has announced the appointment of 80 new partners.

The new partners comprise the appointment of 58 new partners from July 1st,
and 22 new partners recruited externally during the last year.

29% of the new partners are female, bringing the total number of female
partners to 107. According to the latest Accountancy Age Top 50 survey, the firm
has a total of 822 partners.

The new partners span all areas of the firm’s businesses and regions with 29
partners admitted to the assurance practice, 26 partners to the advisory
practice and 25 to the tax practice.

The firm said the number of female partners was now the highest number in the
ten year history of the UK firm, formed when Coopers and Lybrand merged with
Price Waterhouse in 1998.

Ian Powell, PwC’s UK chairman and senior partner, said: ‘I am delighted to
welcome so many great new partners. As market leader we know that we must
continue to recruit and retain the best talent. Developing a more diverse talent
pool at all levels continues to be a priority for the firm.

‘Today is also the tenth anniversary of the formation of
PricewaterhouseCoopers. I am therefore pleased and excited that these
announcements come at a time when we are building further on the last ten years’
success to be ever more successful for our clients in the future.’
