Meet our 12 new partners, February 2023

Bringing the best of our people, capabilities and technology together to support our clients in building trust and delivering sustained outcomes

Mark Averill, CEO and Senior Partner says…

I’m excited to welcome 12 new leaders to the PwC New Zealand partnership.

In a changing market environment, we’re working alongside our clients to help them reinvent their businesses for the future. This means balancing the near-term challenges, such as inflation, slowing growth, and skills shortages, with a response to longer-term trends such as climate change, technology disruption and social cohesion, to ensure businesses remain relevant and viable in the future.

Our new partners represent the diverse skills that enable us to respond to our clients’ changing needs, so we can help solve their important problems in the areas critical to building long-term prosperity for Aotearoa New Zealand.

These promotions are a significant milestone for our firm and new partners. They demonstrate our commitment to bringing together the best of our people, capabilities and technology to support our clients to build trust and deliver sustained outcomes.

Watch our video featuring Mark Averill, CEO and Senior Partner, and meet our new partners.
