TIL: Bob Moritz Was Reappointed PwC Global Chairman … In February

Seriously, I had no idea until tonight when I saw the news release, dated Feb. 24, 2020, posted on PwC’s global website. This never hit our inbox and I can’t find anything else written about this online. Nothing.

Poor Bob. They couldn’t even squeeze out a brief mention on PwC US’s website? You know, the place where he spent seven years as chairman and senior partner before leading the world’s PwC? Other than the unceremonious PR Newswire announcement of Joe Ucuzoglu being elected CEO of Deloitte in March 2019, this has to be the most unspectacular, low-key announcement of a Big 4 global chairman keeping his gig that we’ve ever seen.

Here’s all the ink PwC devoted to BoMo’s reappointment in February:

PwC announced today that Bob Moritz has been reappointed for a second term as Chairman of the PricewaterhouseCoopers Network.

His four-year term, which has been ratified by PwC’s network of member firms worldwide, will begin on July 1, 2020.

In announcing the reappointment, Paul Kepple, the PwC Network Governance Board Chairman, said, “Bob has led the PwC Network with a strong sense of purpose and a clear focus on serving the needs of our people, our stakeholders and society at large. I am delighted at the decision to reappoint Bob for a second term and look forward to working with him over the next four years.”

Bob Moritz, whose first term as PwC’s Global Chairman began on July 1, 2016, previously served as the Chairman and Senior Partner of PwC US beginning in 2009. He also served as the US Assurance leader in addition to a variety of leadership and client service roles during his 35 year career with PwC.

“Serving as the Chairman of the PwC Network is a tremendous honor and I look forward to working with our member firms and my colleagues around the world over the next four years,” said Bob Moritz. “While the world is changing and PwC changes and develops to continue to meet the evolving needs of our stakeholders, our clear focus remains on providing high quality services to our clients and development opportunities for our people and on making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work.”

At least Adrienne gets to swoon over her public accounting crush for another four years.
