PwC announces latest round of promotions in Scotland

Posted: 7th July 2023

PwC has cemented its commitment to investing in its people in Scotland, announcing 226 local promotions across the region.

The latest round of promotions – which includes team members working across all lines of service in each of PwC’s three Scottish offices – includes one new Partner and 12 new Directors.

The Scottish firm welcomes a new equity Partner to the Glasgow office. Craig Willis will join the team in Glasgow as an Audit partner – relocating following promotion from his role as an Audit Director in PwC’s Newcastle office.

Alistair Rose, Lucie Chadwick and Stefanie Hinnenkamp take on Director roles within the Scottish Audit practice; while in Consulting, David MacLeod and Paul Currie have been named as Directors.

The Scottish Risk practice welcomes five new Directors – Ainsley Normand, Arwa Wilson, Gerard Hoey, Jonathan Couto and Sarah Collins – while Lauryn Martin and Phil Morgan have been promoted to Tax Directors.

Half of the new Directors will be based in Edinburgh, four in Glasgow and two in Aberdeen and – together with the remaining 214 promoted team members – reflect the strong growth the firm has experienced in Scotland over the last 12 months, and the scale of its ambition to build on that growth going forward.

Jason Morris, Regional Leader for PwC Scotland, said:

“It’s been a really strong twelve months for the firm in Scotland, and that is testament to the hard work of our teams in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. Our people are our business, and I’m incredibly proud to see so many talented team members progressing in their careers with us.

“I’m also thrilled to welcome Craig to the team in Scotland – he’s delivered outstanding work for PwC in the North of England and his admission to the partnership is well-deserved.

“The strength of our performance over the past year is down to the excellent work our people deliver consistently. I’m in no doubt that our newly promoted team members will bring fresh perspectives and new ideas that will strengthen our capabilities across the industries and markets our Scottish teams serve on a local, national and global level.”

Across PwC UK, 69 directors have been promoted to equity partners, while five further direct partner hires take the total partnership to more than 1,000 for the first time.
