PwC UK is to invest in PwC’s Central and Eastern (CEE) firms over the next three years by bringing in talent from the market as well as seconding specialist partners and directors to the CEE firms.
PwC UK partner Nick Page will also join the management board of PwC CEE.
The firm will focus on the geographies, industries and services likely to drive economic growth in the region, particularly in the larger markets such as Russia and Poland, as well as high growth economies and key sectors such as oil and gas.
Michael Kubena, chief executive officer of PwC CEE said: "This deal with the UK will allow us to accelerate investment in our business and more rapidly develop new skills and value propositions that will benefit our clients and drive sustainable profitable growth. At the same time, it will enable us to offer career development opportunities for our people."
