PwC Selects Tim Ryan as New US Chairman

And because this is 2016, he tweeted it:

Ryan replaces Bob Moritz who's going on to be PwC's global chairman. They both assume their new roles on July 1.

I have to say, I'm surprised by this and not. I'm surprised because I thought that we'd see a female chairman at PwC, following Deloitte and KPMG. However, I can imagine a lot of PwC partners thinking, "Well, we can't elect a woman now. Those clowns beat us to it. We'll look like copycats."

On the other hand, it's not a surprise because Tim Ryan is no slouch. He is currently PwC's Vice Chair of Markets, Strategy, and Stakeholders. He led the firm's assurance practice during the late 2000s when things were falling apart, and served as one of the partners on AIG. He also led the firm's financial services and consumer finance groups. He has a reputation as the nicest guy at PwC and one of the leaders of the firm's attempts at building a more flexible workplace. In the past, he has co-hosted Thanksgiving for PwC employees who can't travel around the holiday. The biggest strike against him would be the sports teams he roots for, but it obviously most people have decided to let that slide.

Okay, P. Dubsteppers — how do you feel about Tim Ryan taking the big chair? Share your thoughts.
