Mark Russell promoted to tax partner with PwC NZ
PricewaterhouseCoopers admitted five new partners to the New Zealand partnership on 1 July 2006, bringing the total number of partners at the local firm to 89. The new partners are Keren Blakey, Brent Hulbert, Richard Longman, Ian McLoughlin and Mark Russell (tax partner).
John Shewan, Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers, said the new partner admissions reflected PricewaterhouseCoopers’ commitment to client service.
PricewaterhouseCoopers CEO, Warwick Hunt, said there was continued demand for solutions to the problems faced by organisations across the business spectrum, despite some signs of economic slowdown.
“It’s very important for us to ensure we are responding to the challenges that are inevitable when the markets change pace,” he said. “Our team has been bolstered by today’s new admissions to the local partnership – the talents of our new partners comprise an important part of our response to the ever changing nature of our business.”
