One month following his appointment, PwC’s soon to become new chief executive officer Tom Seymour has formed his Executive Board. 

Seymour is a 18-year veteran at the Big Four accounting and consulting firm, and in March was elected as PwC’s new CEO as of July. He will take the reins from current CEO Luke Sayers, who by then will have led the professional services giant for two four-year terms. 

The CEO-elect will lead a 14-strong Executive Board, which includes partners heading strategic functions (Chief Operating Officer, Chief Strategy, Risk and Reputation Officer and Chief Diversity) and leaders in the firm’s three main divisions – Assurance, Consulting and Financial Advisory.
