PwC Shifts Its Competitive Poaching Focus to Duff and Phelps

At least for today! As we’ve discussed, PwC has been on a bit of shopping spree when it comes to KPMG partners and principals. Today however, P. Dubs announced that it has picked off Dwight Grant of Duff and Phelps to join their Financial Engineering services group.

Mr Grant was DP’s Global Leader of Financial Engineering prior to joining PwC. His addition follows the firm’s pick up of Pedro Santos to lead the Financial Engineering group as well as Jeremy Fago, Timothy Davis and Matthew Tanner as principals. No word in the PwC press release where those chaps came from but if you’re in the know, we’d love to hear about it.
