Paul Terrington, PwC’s Head of Consulting for the UK and EMEA, has been awarded a CBE for services to the Economy in Northern Ireland. Paul led the firm’s practice in Northern Ireland from 2011-20 and was the Management Board member responsible for Regions from 2016-20.
Under his nine year tenure as regional leader, Paul helped to establish PwC Northern Ireland as a key hub for innovation, technology and service delivery both for the UK and globally. Growing the practice from 600 people to more than 2,300 people, Belfast office is now the firm's largest UK office outside London, and plans are well underway to move into a new, larger office at Merchant Square in the new year.
Commenting on the Honour, Kevin Ellis, chairman and senior partner of PwC UK, said:
“I’m very proud that Paul has been recognised for his services to the Northern Irish economy. As a result of his commitment and passion, PwC has had a significant impact in the region, including groundbreaking partnerships with the Northern Irish government and education establishments, which have developed pathways for young people to high quality jobs and skills development. As well as driving our business forward in the region, Paul helped to establish our Into Tomorrow programme, which partners organisations working in suicide prevention and related mental health areas. Paul continually demonstrates our purpose in action and this recognition is richly deserved.”
