Melanie Butler leads PwC’s Global Crisis Centre “GCC”, which acts as a trusted guide to clients as they prepare for, respond to and recover from the crises they face. She has worked with and alongside governments and organisations to help them confront crises with confidence and to resolve the critical problems they encounter - and leverages the expertise of our crisis teams across the network so that organisations can reassure their own clients, communities and stakeholders that they’re able to manage crisis situations effectively.
Most recently, Melanie led the firm’s response to the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, supporting international organisations to effectively deliver assistance to impacted countries. Prior to her GCC role, she co-led our Deals Advisory practice based in Tripoli, Libya, post-revolution. Her clients included the National Transitional Council’s Temporary Financing Mechanism, Ministries of Health, Housing and Education. She has been a partner at PwC in the UK since 2003. A forensic accountant by background, Melanie's experience is focused on crisis response, financial management, investigations and contract examinations, in particular the areas of transparency, accountability and governance.
