“We recognise that there are significant opportunities for growth across the North and that each region has unique industries and sectors, “ she said. “Our success lies in our people knowing the market inside out and these investments in leadership teams will reinvigorate our offer to local clients and help us clearly focus on meeting their needs.” reports that in the North East, which includes Yorkshire, Ian Green has been appointed as regional leader while in the North West, Iwan Griffiths will join the Manchester office as the Regional Leader and Office Senior Partner.

Iwan Griffiths, originally from Shropshire, began his career at PwC in London in 1994 and has held leadership roles in Seoul from 2005 to 2008 and Tokyo from 2008 until today. Ian Green has been with the firm for 25 years and currently leads the Northern restructuring practice.
