(UPDATE) Promotion Watch ’13: New PwC Partners

~ UPDATE: Full list of new partners included on third page.
Partner promotion season is hitting its stride, people. After learning of Ernst & Young’s new class in the Americas last week, we’re happy to report that PwC’s class was announced internally on Friday, with public announcements being left up to the local offices. Boston, North Texas, and the Pacific Northwest have all issued press releases so far. 
We’re not patient enough to wait for the rest of the offices to catch up, so we asked around and luckily a trusted source was willing to provide us with the list of new assurance partners and principals. You can see it on the next page.
While it remains to be seen what the dynamics of the other practices are, it's worth noting that as far as assurance goes, the number of new women partners is in the area of 28%. By my count, there are 16 women listed (gender-neutral names going for the gents) out of the 56 total. That's slightly lower than the total class last year that saw a full third of the new partners being women. The 56 new partners in the audit practice is slightly lower than last year's count of 67.
We’re still trying to dig up the tax and advisory lists, so if you can, pass them along and we'll keep you updated. UPDATE: See the full list on page 3. And congratulations to all the new partners and principals at PwC.
Here’s the message from assurance leader Tim Ryan and the list of new partners. An asterisk denotes the person as a principal. UPDATE: See the full list on the next page.
Please join me in congratulating the 56 new partners listed below to our Assurance practice! These individuals have demonstrated their commitment to the firm through the quality and excellence of their work, leadership, and dedication, and it's an honor to congratulate them on this accomplishment. Throughout their careers, this talented group of men and women have made quality their top priority, consistently lived the firm behaviors, and delivered the PwC Experience to their teammates on a daily basis — our successes in Assurance and across the firm are a testament to their many remarkable contributions. Please visit this Spark site to learn more about our new partners (both in Assurance and across the firm), see their photos and link to their profiles. Again, congratulations to our new partners on achieving this career milestone — and my thanks to all of you who have helped them along the way!
