PwC CEE continues as the Awards’ Strategic Partner
“I’m proud that PwC served as a partner of the inaugural Emerging Europe Awards and I’m pleased that we are not only continuing to stay involved for the coming edition, but expanding the scope of our participation,” said Jeffery McMillan, Director, Global Communications, PwC.
“We have found the Emerging Europe Awards to be a great match for PwC, for our regional practice across Central and Eastern Europe, and our purpose of building trust in society and solving important problems. The awards recognise and bring together people from across the region whose work helps promote our region and make life better for its people. Our involvement has provided us with many great opportunities to build relationships with representatives of businesses, governments, investment promotion agencies and financial institutions.”
“The first awards ceremony was a great success. Not only was it an inspirational showcase for how dynamic, innovative and passionate the emerging Europe region is — but the organisers also did a great job of fostering a sense of community among participants from several countries.” added Mr McMillan.
The inaugural edition of the Awards, which took place on 21-22 June 2018, featured Olga Grygier-Siddons, former CEO of PwC CEE (pictured above with Peter Stracar, CEO, GE Europe on the left, and Samuel Burke,News Anchor and Business and Technology Correspondent, CNN, on the right).
