PwC appoint Tina Hallett to lead firm’s government & public sector group

Published at 09:00 AM on 10 September 2014

Tina Hallett, an experienced partner and public sector advisor has been appointed as leader of PwC’s government and public sector group.

Tina will lead PwC’s multi-disciplinary team working with organisations across local and central government, health, education, transport, housing, defence and international development.

Her appointment underlines PwC’s progress on female diversity, focused on developing and supporting women to leadership positions. Women represent 23% of senior leadership positions and 40% of the firm’s partner promotions this year.

A partner at PwC for 15 years, Tina Hallett is a specialist in people and change, with significant experience across all areas of PwC’s public and private sector business. She previously led the firm’s Central Government practice for three years, and recently led the first of PwC’s public and private sector debates to support better understanding and action on the poverty premium.

Recognised as a role model within PwC, Tina was a founding member of the PwC Women’s network, providing support and role models for women at all stages in their career at the firm. She also worked with the Ministry of Justice to create an innovative public -private co-coaching initiative designed to connect and coach women in the public and private sectors. Tina served for three years as an independent member of the Ministry of Defence’s Diversity Board to support their progress on diversity.

Over the coming party conference season, Tina will lead PwC’s work with BritainThinks to  bring the public’s voice to the conference debates on the issues of  delivering growth, lifting living standards, and reforming public services. A series of three ‘citizen’s juries’ will take place in Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham, with a nationally representative sample of the public, to examine public views on the issues of national importance, and how they should be addressed in politics and policy.

Tina Hallett, leader, government and public sector, PwC, commented:

“Often the person on the street’s voice and perspectives are lost in the conference debates. So this programme will bring the public to the heart of the issues at the conferences. It’s a fantastic opportunity to examine people’s thoughts on a diverse range of issues – from tackling poverty , to how best to generate good jobs and improve public services.”

Ends.
