Nick's story

  • 2012 Ran first project as an acting manager
  • 2010 Promoted to Senior Associate
  • 2010 Used PwC’s flexibility model when a family member became ill
  • 2009 Traveled to the Kurdistan region of Iraq to develop an anti-corruption strategy for the region
  • 2008 Worked at AIG during the height of the financial crisis


Q: How was your experience in Kurdistan in the midst of turmoil in Iraq?

A: Kurdistan is not like the rest of Iraq. There hadn't been any attacks or bombings in the Region in the two years prior to my travel there, so it’s a relatively peaceful area. We helped the client develop an anti-corruption strategy which contained different programs they should implement for businesses and requirements for contractors to help prevent corruption and make Kurdistan more appealing to foreign businesses. The Prime Minister of Kurdistan announced our strategy in a press conference two weeks after our trip which was pretty cool.

Q: How did that experience help develop your career at PwC?

A: I definitely think it helped me to continue to grow as a leader on projects. For example, in 2012 I had been a senior associate for two years, and I was given the opportunity to manage my first project. I was the main contact on this project internally and for the client, supervised the project team, and led the client calls each week.

Q: Do you feel that you’ve received a lot of support from PwC?

A: Yes, both professionally and personally. A close family member of mine was having medical issues in 2010. Their diagnosis required them to be hospitalized for a little while. I wanted to be there for them. My team provided tremendous support. They were very understanding of my need to make my family a top priority. It makes me even more appreciative of PwC and my co-workers for being so supportive.
