PwC Romania has promoted three new partners in its audit, tax and legal services departments: Manuela Guia, Andreea Mitirita and Monica Movileanu. The accounting and consulting firm has also made two senior appointments in its leadership team.

As of 1 July, Andreea Mitirita has become a partner within the Tax and Legal Services department of PwC Romania. Over the past 15 years, she gained significant experience in business restructuring, due-dilligence, mergers & acquisitions and tax litigation projects, both on a local and international level. In her new role, she is the new M&A leader of the Tax and Legal Service practice within PwC Romania and will coordinate the Iasi and Timisoara offices (PwC also has offices in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Constanta). 

Manuela Guia has also been named a partner in PwC’s Tax and Legal Services department. She specialises in competition, pharma, data protection, intellectual property, consumer protection and public sector, and is currently the sole Romanian lawyer that has landed a mention in Global Competition Review’s prestigious ‘Top 100 Women in Antitrust Globally’ list. 

Monica Movileanu has been admitted to PwC’s Assurance partnership – she leads the Accounting Advisory Services practice in Romania, with a focus on clients in the financial services sector. She has been tasked with growing the proposition both in Romania and in other Eastern European countries. 

“The professional success of Manuela, Andreea, and Monica comes after many years of hard work, with great dedication and excellent results, during which they developed from junior positions, to joining our partnership. I am very proud of their evolution and wish them all the best in their new roles,” said Ionut Simion, Country Managing Partner of PwC Romania.

Alongside the internal partner promotions, Simion added that the Romanian member firm of the global accounting and consulting giant has made two changes to its top structure. Luca Martini has been named the new Advisory Leader of PwC in Romania and South East Europe, replacing Edward Macnamara, who has been leading the team for the past two years and now focuses on the global business recovery services project on a global level. 

Martini is a veteran of the consulting industry. He worked 25 years for Accenture and McKinsey & Company, and at both consultancies he was a senior partner. Most recently, he was head of Accenture Strategy in Australia and New Zealand, and previously Senior Partner at McKinsey, in charge of the firm’s Banking practice in Australia and Organisation Banking service line for Asia.

“Luca will be instrumental in achieving our strategic objective of becoming distinctive leaders of the Romanian professional services market. His extensive experience in leading teams in complex advisory projects and various markets will strengthen our management consulting capabilities and will help us bring new perspectives and innovative solutions to our clients,” remarked Simion. 

Meanwhile, Daniel Anghel has been appointed head of the Tax and Legal Services practice for Romania. He joined PwC in 1997 and has been leading the PwC Central and Eastern Europe Indirect Tax Group for the last five years. Anghel is an expert in VAT, customs and international trade. 

Earlier this year, rivals KPMG and EY promoted two women to top leadership roles in Romania, while Deloitte also added three new partners to its local partnership ranks.
