PwC’s new leaders reflect the evolving needs of business

PwC in New Zealand is bolstering its leadership team across a greater number of specialised areas with eleven new partner and principal promotions.

PwC New Zealand’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Averill says, “We’re investing in people and areas of our business where there’s opportunity to help clients solve important problems.

“As our clients grapple with complex challenges, competitors and costs, we see great potential to add value by helping businesses think about the future in new ways. We advise our clients to continually review and adapt their business to meet market conditions.”
