PwCIL governance bodies

Network Leadership Team

The Network Leadership Team (NLT) sets the overall strategy for the PwC network and the standards to which PwC firms agree to adhere.

The NLT is made up of the Chairman of the PwC network; the senior partners of the US, the UK and China member firms; and a fifth member appointed by the Board, currently the senior partner of PwC Germany. The Chairman of the PwC network and the fifth member may serve on the NLT for a maximum of two terms of four years each in their respective capacities. The terms of the other NLT members are limited by the arrangements in their respective firms. The NLT typically meets monthly and on further occasions as required.

Strategy Council

The Strategy Council, which is made up of senior partners of the largest PwC firms and regions, agrees the strategic direction of the network and facilitates alignment for the execution of strategy. The Strategy Council meets on average four times a year.

Network Executive Team

The Network Executive Team is appointed by, and reports to, the Network Leadership Team. Its members are responsible for strategy and the coordination of key aspects of PwC’s Assurance, Advisory and Tax offerings, and functional areas such as Risk & Legal, Human Capital, Operations and Clients & Markets across the PwC network.

Global Board

The Board, which consists of 18 elected members, is responsible for the governance of PwCIL, oversight of the Network Leadership Team and approval of network standards. The Board does not have an external role. Board members are elected every four years by partners from all PwC firms. The current board, with members from 13 countries, took up office in April 2013.

Board members may serve a maximum of two terms of four years each. The Board meets four times a year and on further occasions as required.
