PwC has elected Lisa Sawicki to chair the Global Governance Board of PwC International Limited (PwCIL), which is responsible for the governance of PwCIL and the PwC network, as well as oversight of PwC’s network leadership team, and approval of the standards by which each PwC firm must abide.
Sawicki is a partner of PwC US, and is based in North Carolina. She is also a member of PwC US’s board of partners and principals.
She brings over 30 years of experience providing audit and business advisory services to clients in the Financial Services industry, including acting as the global engagement partner for some of PwC’s largest international Banking and Capital Markets clients.
Her previous roles include serving as Financial Services Assurance leader for the New York Metro area and as the Assurance Diversity leader for PwC US. She has served as a member of PwC’s Global Board for the last four years and has been elected to serve a second four year term.

Bob Moritz, global chairman of the PwC network, said: “I congratulate Lisa on her election as Chair of the Board of PwCIL. Her role as a partner working with some of our most complex global clients and her experience as a member of both the US and global governance boards will prove invaluable as the board guides PwC in the implementation of our strategy – The New Equation.
“I would also like to thank the outgoing chairman Paul Kepple for his wisdom and support over the last four years as chairman, and eight years as a global board member.”
He added: “I would also like to welcome and congratulate all the other members who have been elected to the PwCIL Board and in particular our two independent board members Jan Sijbrand and Troy Paredes who will bring a wealth of experience, depth of knowledge and add new and unique perspectives to our board discussions.”
