Promotion Watch ’20: PwC Canada Welcomed 22 to Partnership Right Before Gutting 5% of Its Workforce

Among the slew of messages we got yesterday regarding the layoffs this week at PwC Canada was this one from a PwCer who was among the hundreds of employees told they were no longer welcome at the House of Marcoux:

PwC Canada, just a week ago, was “proud” to announce their new 2020 partners, while just a week later they are terminating staff.

Wow. That is … some questionable timing. Nothing like celebrating your new rainmakers and then days later kicking 5% of your employees to the curb.

But we really can’t hold that against the 12 men and 10 women who have probably already had a portion of their newfound riches cut to make sure their subordinates won’t be laid off there won’t be any more layoffs.

Here are the 22 PwCers who now have a seat at the adult table:

  • Andrew Azmudeh, Tax, Calgary
  • Michelle Bourgeois, Consulting, Toronto
  • Courtney Brown, Tax, Oakville, Ontario
  • Fadi Chamoun, Tax, Calgary
  • Ajay Dhillon, Consulting, Calgary
  • Heather Drysdale, Independence, Toronto
  • Jessica Else, Tax, Calgary
  • Marino Fremis, Consulting, Toronto
  • Eduardo Fusaro, Consulting, Toronto
  • Danny Garwood, Deals, Montreal
  • Michelle Grant, Deals, Vancouver
  • Kashif Islam, Tax, Toronto
  • David Malin, Deals, Montreal
  • Susan Martyn, Tax, Vancouver
  • Heather Meek, Consulting, Ottawa
  • Jennifer Melnyk, Consulting, Calgary
  • Chris Polson, Deals, Toronto
  • Krista Ryan, Assurance, St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador
  • Andrew Silcock, Consulting, Toronto
  • Mike Sturino, Tax, Toronto
  • Sofia Theodorou, Chief People Officer, Toronto
  • Emma Whalley-Hands, Deals, Toronto

Congrats all around.
