PwC UK has appointed Hugh Lloyd Ellis as leader of its Private Equity business.

Hugh has worked at PwC for over 15-years, including two years spent with the Hong Kong firm, supporting clients through the deals process as a Transactions Services partner, working across multiple sectors and on acquisitions and divestments ranging in size and value. As the Private Equity leader he brings a deep sector market knowledge and the best of PwC’s technical capabilities from across the UK to its clients.
