Focusing on growth
PwC Scotland appoints three partners and six directors
Gillian Alexander, pictured, who has been with the firm since 2001, will be responsible for the continued growth and development of PwC’s financial services audit practice, where she already manages a portfolio of major clients. Ms Alexander’s promotion takes the number of female partners to seven, representing 24% of the total Scottish partnership.
Edinburgh-based Tom Pulling will lead data and analytics in the risk assurance business, where he will have a key role leading wider technology engagements and will drive growth by helping clients exploit data and technology to solve business problems.
Craig French, based in Glasgow, becomes a partner in the tax practice, where he will lead and grow the large corporate tax team. He will also work with international businesses with a presence in Scotland.
PwC has also promoted six directors in Scotland – half of them female. Matt Kaye and Lisa Sawyer work in the audit practice; Iain Kirkpatrick in risk assurance; Sharon Blain and Gemma Buxton both work in tax focusing on corporate tax and devolved issues, and global mobility respectively, and Graeme Williams sits within the deals corporate finance team.
Lindsay Gardiner, chairman of PwC Scotland, said: “This year’s partner and director promotions once again illustrate the strength and depth of the talent we have working for PwC in Scotland across all parts of the firm.”
