PwC appoints new global chairman

Assurance specialist to begin four-year term later this year, succeeding veteran chairman Dennis Nally

BIG FOUR firm PwC has named audit specialist Robert Moritz as its new global chairman, effective from July 1.

Moritz has served as the group’s US chairman and senior partner since 2009, having joined the firm in 1985.

His major focus at the firm has been audit, having recently completed two terms as chairman of the governing board for the centre for audit quality.

Moritz succeeds chairman Dennis Nally, who is ending his 42-year career at PwC in July. He served two terms as the group’s chairman during a time of expansion, including the purchase of technology consulting business Outbox, and securing the audit of FTSE 100 pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca.

“Bob brings a strong sense of purpose, strategic leadership and business insight. His clear focus on all stakeholders is critical to the successful future of our worldwide network,” said John G. Maxwell, chairman of PwC’s global board.

“During his tenure in the US, Bob’s outspoken support of work-life flexibility for the firm’s people, the importance of diversity on his own team, and the significant investments he has overseen in new and cutting edge technologies make him the ideal forward-looking leader to navigate the global economy and bring our best ideas and solutions to clients.”
