Senior PwC partner elected Lord Mayor of the City of London

PwC senior partner Charles Bowman has been elected as the next Lord Mayor of the City of London effective from 10 November 2017 for a one year term. The Lord Mayor is the head of the Square Mile in the centre of London.

Bowman will succeed current Lord Mayor Dr Andrew Parmley as the 690th Lord Mayor and he will serve as a global ambassador for the UK-based financial and professional services industry as well as lead overseas business delegations.

 “I will be challenging business to raise its game – better business trusted by society, because all too often businesses are scored poorly when the public is asked about its role,” Bowman said.

Bowman added that he will ensure that Brexit will work for city firms and communities: “We want see mutual access to EU markets continues, ensure early agreement on a transitional deal and make sure we continue to allow the brightest and best to find jobs in the UK.”
