PwC admits 61 new UK equity partners

SIXTY-ONE NEW equity partners have been admitted to PwC’s UK firm this year.

The Big Four firm, which has no salaried partners, announced that 39 new partners were admitted to the firm on 1 July, joining the 22 partners recruited from outside PwC during the last 12 months.

The partners are spread across all business areas of the firm and include 11 women, PwC said.

Ian Powell, senior partner and chairman of PwC, said the firm will recruit around 2,200 people at student, intern, graduate and experienced levels this year.

“We draw our partners from a wide base of skills to reflect the needs of our clients in all areas of their business,” Powell said.

Ernst & Young announced the appointment of 43 new UK & Ireland partners this week.
