PwC Luxembourg is proud to announce the admission of fourteen new partners to the firm, along with five new managing directors. They bring years of collective professional experience and expertise gathered from delivering projects all over the world.

This massive investment is a testimony of the level of confidence of our Firm locally and our Network globally. We are convinced that in today’s world marked by multiple fractures, professional service firms that bring trust and credibility as well as help to solve our clients’ problems are more important than ever. PwC intends to provide a distinctive client experience through a combination of technical expertise, relentless collaboration between all service lines as required, deep local roots in all our relevant territories as well as uncompromising focus on our values to advocate solutions that are sustainable in the future.

John Parkhouse, CEO, PwC Luxembourg, says, “PwC is delighted to introduce our Class of 2021 Partner admissions as well as our New Managing Directors 2021. These newly appointed professionals come from all our service lines and are reflective of the specific areas of growth that we envisage. They will help us innovate solutions that are human-led and tech-powered. At PwC, we are convinced that it’s the machine which is the imperfect human and not the human who is the imperfect machine — hence a focus on bringing the most relevant technology to all our services but with the human element remaining at the core of our preoccupations.”

As always, we like to introduce our new partners and managing directors in a different way every year. In honour of PwC global introducing The New Equation, we decided on the theme for this year’s campaign as “New beginnings”. We will run the campaign over a series of weeks, asking our newly appointed partners questions about the future, but we have added a twist this year. A bit of a surprise. This year's campaign is driven by the powerful feeling of retaking our lives after the last challenging 18 months we all have gone through. With a symbolic gesture of taking their masks off for a new beginning, our newly appointed partners answer different questions that show their personal and professional views in a series of four videos.

We hope you enjoy discovering a bit more about our new partners both professionally and personally on PwC Luxembourg’s social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter). Naturally, we will also have information about each new partner, including their official bio and contact information on the website on a regular basis over the next few weeks.

The New Equation. What is new about it?

On June 15, PwC Global and member firms within the PwC International Network unveiled The New Equation, a revolutionary approach in how we see new opportunities to serve clients as they work to build trust and deliver sustained business outcomes.

It is clever that the world has changed massively in recent years, with challenges such as technological disruption, climate change, fractured geopolitics and social tension. More recently, people and businesses across the world have felt the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is continuing to have a huge impact on the external environment within which our clients operate. All this change means we need to adapt and do things differently too.

Our new strategy centres around the two most fundamental needs confronting clients in this new context – the need to build trust with their stakeholders and to deliver sustained outcomes. And it builds on successes and learnings as an organisation with a long history of serving a wide group of stakeholders. You will be hearing a lot more from us on this topic.
