“We are pleased to announce Miles as PwC’s U.S. Advisory leader,” PwC U.S. Chairman and Senior Partner Bob Moritz said. “Miles has made significant contributions to the firm and its stakeholders during his long and distinguished career with PwC. He has held a variety of leadership roles and served some of our largest global clients. The diversity of Miles’ leadership experiences makes him uniquely prepared to lead the Advisory practice as it continues to evolve to meet changing market demands. We also extend deep appreciation to Dana for his tremendous contributions to our Advisory business over the years and his ability to mobilize our growing business to best serve the needs of our clients.”
Everson holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Minnesota’s St. Cloud State University.
“I am excited to have this opportunity to lead our Advisory practice at such a unique inflection point in time for today’s businesses,” Everson said. “Achieving growth in today’s complex, global business environment means having the right strategy to navigate risks, and also achieve and maintain competitive advantage. We remain committed to our Advisory strategy of helping clients with their most pressing business objectives, from strategy through execution.”
