Chris Wales takes new role

PwC has just hired a well-connected tax specialist in London to spearhead its work with governments to improve how tax authorities operate

Chris Wales has joined PwC in London.

Gordon Brown’s former economic adviser will lead the firm’s work in assisting governments in developed and developing countries with strengthening their tax policy and administration. His responsibilities will include a particular strategic focus on sub-Saharan Africa.

Wales, who is a founder of the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation and is still on its advisory board, has just written the first version of a report on how tax policy is made around the world and how it could be improved.

Since he left his position as a member of the Council of Economic Advisers at the UK Treasury in November 2003, he has worked for Goldman Sachs, Lucida, a specialist insurance company, and most recently, FTI Consulting.
