PwC has added to its Deals practice with the appointment of Johnny Colville as a partner to lead the firm’s coverage of the Financial Investor community.
Colville joins from investment bank Houlihan Lokey, where he helped grow its Financial Sponsor coverage platform into the largest mid-market team in Europe.
He brings over 25 years experience advising clients in the UK and across Europe on a wide range of sell-side, buy-side and capital raising transactions.
The firm said the appointment “underpins PwC’s commitment to providing best-in-class advisory services to its clients” and represents an “important step” in building out its pre-eminent professional services platform globally.
Lucy Stapleton, UK head of Deals, said: “I am absolutely thrilled to welcome Johnny to the PwC Deals team – Johnny’s skillset and experience in the market will be invaluable to our practice and will strengthen our offering. I know he will bring his spirit of co-creation and collaboration to everything we do, allowing us to get the very best outcomes for our clients.”
Colville added: “With expert practitioners across 156 territories and a product suite that supports investors across the entire life cycle of asset ownership, I am looking forward to working with colleagues to provide our clients with solutions to their most pressing and important issues.”
