PwC is delighted to announce the appointment of two new Office Senior Partners for its West and Wales region, as well as filling a newly created role of Clients and Markets Regional Lead.
Tom Ayerst will fill the position left vacant by Katharine Finn when she moved from her dual role as Regional Leader for West and Wales and Office Senior Partner for Bristol. Felicity Rees will become the Cardiff Office Senior Partner, taking over from Lynn Pamment who is retiring from the firm in December.
Nick Morgan, with 20 years’ experience in the region, will become PwC’s first Clients and Markets Regional Lead for West and Wales and will work with the new OSPs to strengthen the firm’s presence in the region. He was most recently PwC’s Tax leader in the West.
Tom heads our regional Deals business, supporting a range of clients on acquisitions, disposals, fund-raising and changes in ownership. He works with some of the region's leading listed business, national private equity houses and lenders, private businesses and the public sector.
Felicity is a partner in our financial services practice, and during her 20 years with the firm she has worked with clients across investment management, banking and insurance sectors. She now specialises in Pensions and leads our Pensions Assurance practice.
Felicity Rees commented:
“This is a fantastic opportunity and I am looking forward to being ‘the face of the firm' in Wales. I’m determined to ensure PwC is delivering its strategy and purpose, working in partnership with the local business community to be part of Welsh cities' continued improvement, as shown in our 2019 Good Growth for Cities report.”
Tom Ayerst commented:
“I’m really looking forward to bringing my own experiences to the role and using the opportunity to build deeper relationships in the region that will help to make Bristol an even better place to live and work.”
Nick Morgan commented:
“Having worked in the region for the last 19 years, this is an exciting new challenge in a dynamic market. This is a region full of opportunity and PwC is committed to continuing to grow its presence here as well as introducing new ways to support our clients.”
John-Paul Barker, PwC’s West and Wales regional leader, added:
“I am delighted at this news and pleased for Felicity, Tom and Nick who I’m sure will do superb jobs in their new roles. My thanks go to Katharine and Lynn for the fantastic work in the region which we are now building upon.”
