Michael Burwell’s three decades at Pricewaterhouse Coopers
Michael started working at Pricewaterhouse Coopers at a young age. It goes without saying that he started out at junior positions before making his way to the leadership roles in the firm. For more than a decade, Michael worked with audit clients of the firm at the assurance sector of the firm. It was after 11 years of impeccable work that he finally got the promotion to the role of partner in the firm’s Detroit Transaction Service sector in the year 1997.
To Michael, this was a chance to prove himself and so he worked tirelessly to make his work impeccable. His hard work did not go unnoticed; soon he was promoted to the head of the firm’s central region. This was the beginning of his good fortune; it did not take long for the firm to grant him yet another promotion to the role of head of the entire Transaction service in the United States.
The year 2007 was a big year for Michael Burwell. This was when Pricewaterhouse Coopers named him the Chief Financial Officer as well as the Chief Operating Officer barely a year after becoming the CFO. Half a decade later, he became the Vice Chairperson of the firm’s the United States and Global Transactions.
For years he also worked as a senior relationship partner for a number of clients in the firm before becoming a full-on partner in the year 2016. He resigned from the company in 2017 and took on the role at Willis Towers Watson almost immediately.
