PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has appointed Achim Bauer as partner of its European insurance practice. Bauer has more than 25 years of experience in the banking and insurance sectors.

PwC’s global insurance leader Ian Dilks commented: “A combination of current market turmoil and of new regulation is likely to result in considerable changes within the industry. Bauer’s depth of experience and advisory expertise will supplement PwC’s advisory capabilities across Europe and will enable us to better support our clients during this time.”

Taylor was previously a partner in the financial services advisory practice of IT company Atos Origin, where he specialised in technology and security.

“By using specialist technology, industry knowledge and investigation techniques to analyse and interrogate data and present critical information in an evidentially sound manner, we can support clients as they seek to quickly prevent and resolve disputes, misconduct and inappropriate behaviour,” Taylor said.

KPMG UK’s forensic practice has been the fastest growing business at the firm for the past two years. KPMG said the growing importance of forensic technology has been instrumental in helping the division’s revenues double during this period.

Ernst & Young Romania (E&Y) has appointed Panos Papazoglou as country assurance co-ordinator.
