These investments cover all areas of consulting from industry focused strategy development to IT enabled business transformation. In many ways, PwC now has more strategy and operations expertise than many of the specialised consulting firms in our region.”
Vidas Venckus, Advisory Leader for PwC Lithuania added, “As the Lithuanian economy recovers, our clients are looking to transform and grow their businesses, while competing in a price sensitive market. We not only have the expertise to help our clients develop such strategies, we also have the know-how to help them implement them. This is what sets us apart.”
