Business adviser PwC has promoted three new partners in Scotland “reflecting commitment to risk assurance, actuarial services and digital offerings”.
They are Jonathan McGuffie, Lindsey Paterson and Stewart Wilson. McGuffie, who will be leading the actuarial services team, said he was “incredibly proud” to be accepted into the partnership at PwC.
Paterson, who will continue to advise on risk assurance, added: “I am absolutely delighted that I am being admitted to the partnership. PwC is a fantastic place to work and to be part of the partnership is a real honour. My focus will continue to be on providing risk assurance services to the government and public sector – a sector I am passionate about and which is facing some enormous challenges in the next few years.”
Wilson, who will be leading the digital transformation business across the devolved local and regional government sector and managing the software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering known as Engage, said: “Technology is having such a fundamental impact on the world we live in, and my role is to support clients to navigate the challenges, create value and deliver better outcomes through the use of digital and emerging technologies.”
