PwC in the Channel Islands has appointed Simon Perry as its new Senior Partner. A Partner with PwC since 2005, his most recent role was as a Partner on secondment to PwC’s London office since 2013, leading the UK Asset and Wealth Management Advisory business. While in the UK, he maintained responsibility for leading PwC CI’s due diligence transaction work and listing projects on major stock exchanges. Simon also led the firm’s relationship with one of the largest global asset management and asset servicers businesses across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), a testament to the value the global network places on Simon’s leadership. Born and educated in Ireland, Simon firstly relocated to Guernsey in the early ’90s, prior to moving to Jersey in 1996 and on to PwC in Sydney in 1999, before returning to the Bailiwick in 2003. An avid supporter of the PwC diversity journey, Simon also firmly believes in bringing the best talent to clients, regardless of age, race, gender or social background and will remain dedicated to embedding diversity in all areas of the business. Simon will succeed Brendan McMahon, who formally leaves PwC in Spring 2018.
