PWC has strengthened its financial restructuring offering to corporates with the appointment of a new partner.
Alistair Dick joins the Big Four firm from Rothschild and will lead PwC’s corporate financial restructuring team, where he will be responsible for helping to grow that offering.
Dick was most recently head of Rothschild’s debt advisory and restructuring practice in South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. He also spent over six years in Rothschild’s European debt advisory and restructuring team based in London and has a background in natural resources project finance and acquisition finance.
Heather Swanston, head of PwC’s refinancing and restructuring practice, said: “Our restructuring business continues to achieve record growth and Alistair’s appointment demonstrate our commitment to strengthen our financial restructuring offering for corporates. Corporates are increasingly looking for an adviser that can provide the full range of restructuring advisory and implementation services that they need. Alistair’s wealth of experience and track record in helping corporates navigate financial restructuring will be a huge asset to our expanding team.”
John Dwyer, UK deals leader at PwC, said: “This appointment is part of a UK and global initiative to invest more in lead advisory services. We are currently recruiting top talent from within the investment banking and debt advisory sectors internationally, allowing us to advise on and originate many more deals.”
