Arif Ahmad

Partner and North Head of Private Business, PwC United Kingdom

I joined PwC Leeds in 1996 and have worked in the firm's offices in Leeds, London and Chicago and Cleveland in the US.

I became a Partner in 2009, and had the huge honour of being PwC's Leeds Office Senior Partner from 2013 to 2016, and then led PwC's London Region Assurance practice from 2016 to 2019. 

I now lead PwC's private business practice across the North of England, providing advice to businesses and their owners on audits, governance structures and policies, and exits/fundraising, having myself led a large number of private equity buyouts, debt raises and IPOs.

I also Chair the PwC UK-India Group, and am a champion for the diversity and inclusion agenda, both within PwC and more broadly.

Being active in the community is really important to me. In my 3.5 years as PwC Leeds Office Senior Partner, the office raised over £100,000 for charity.

I have previously served on the Board and Finance Committee of St. Gemma's Hospice in Leeds and Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, and am a Trustee of Harewood House Trust.
