Michael Moore CA appointed as PwC devolution advisor
PwC appoints former Scottish Secretary Michael Moore CA to devolution advisory role.
PwC has appointed former Scottish Secretary Michael Moore CA to its senior team advising on the devolution agenda across the UK.
In December, PwC launched the Devo Delivery Network, a team of more than 350 local and central government experts working across the Big Four firm's 31 UK regional offices. The Devo Delivery Network will support organisations and authorities on issues of devolution and regional economic growth.
Michael will advise the Devo Delivery Network, working alongside Stephanie Hyde, PwC Executive Board Head of Regions, helping PwC clients prepare for the transition from devolution deals to project delivery.
PwC's Government and Public Sector team in Scotland has also been boosted by the appointment of consulting director Fiona Young. With more than 12 years' public sector experience, including a spell with EY where she led the public sector practice in Scotland, Fiona has gained a depth of experience in areas such as business transformation, enhancing operational efficiency and service delivery design, as well as insight on many of the wide range of issues facing this sector.
The UK is being radically re-shaped and while the public debates about devolution continue, public and private sector leaders are already implementing big changes to the way public services are shaped and delivered.
Commenting on the appointments, Lindsay Gardiner, regional chairman, PwC in Scotland, said: "It's great to welcome Michael back into the Edinburgh office and to our UK firm. A seasoned politician with significant business experience, Michael has been at the core of the devolution journey, and will undoubtedly bring a wealth of expertise and insight to this agenda.
"We are also delighted to welcome Fiona on board. This appointment further demonstrates our commitment to retain and grow our market share within the public sector."
As a UK Government minister, Michael piloted the Scotland Act through Parliament and was a member of the coalition government that introduced ‘City Deals' and ‘Growth Deals' across England. He subsequently served on the Smith Commission which devised the principles and detail of significant additional Scottish devolution measures.
Michael said: "The UK is being radically re-shaped and while the public debates about devolution continue, public and private sector leaders are already implementing big changes to the way public services are shaped and delivered.
"After 18 years in parliament, I am delighted to be starting a new career with the firm, focused on making devolution a practical success."
