Singapore: PwC is growing its consulting capability in South East Asia with the formation of a new joint venture between PwC Consulting practices in South East Asia, New Zealand, Australia and the United States.
The new South East Asia consulting practice, formed this month, will give PwC clients access to an integrated service network and specialist consultants across the region.
"South East Asia is one of the fastest growing regions in the world, and there is significant demand for specialist consulting expertise and support," said Derek Kidley who will head the new South East Asia consulting practice.
"Our clients are focused on identifying and pursuing opportunities in South East Asia and the increased focus and investment in the region will ensure enhanced support for clients.
"PwC's individual firms have developed a strong Consulting presence in South East Asia, and this joint venture will allow us to take this to the next level. The new focus will ensure we are sharing our resources, capabilities and expertise, and we'll make sure that our clients always have access to the best people and most relevant support across the region."
PwC Partner, Derek Kidley, will be based in Singapore and head up the new operation.
