*By partner, in fact, it's technically a "national leader in Conflict Minerals Center of Excellence" which was a Director role.
At least from what I can tell on Greg Szczesny's LinkedIn profile. Anyway, Mr. Szczesny (I'm going with suh-seez-NEE) will be a Managing Director in PwC's Risk Assurance practice focusing on…yes, conflict minerals services. And it sounds like he was quite the rock star at the House of Klynveld:
Based in New York, Szczesny joins PwC after seven years with KPMG where he most recently served as a national leader in that firm's Conflict Minerals Center of Excellence. His expertise is widely recognized having been one of KPMG's national leaders in the development, validation and roll-out of the Dodd-Frank Act – Section 1502 (conflict minerals) compliance methodology and client engagement materials. His prior project experience beyond conflict minerals includes leading a multi-year audit for a global diversified industrial firm, conducting internal audits and recommending process improvements across global manufacturing facilities.
Right! Whatever that is1. Congrats, PwC; you've got one of your very own now.
