Paul Griggs

More than 4,000 U.S. and Mexico partners and principals of Big 4 firm PwC have elected Paul Griggs to serve as the firm’s next senior partner. His four-year term will begin July 1.

A nearly 30-year PwC veteran, Griggs serves on the U.S. leadership team as vice chair of U.S. markets, overseeing the strategy and execution of the commercial, people, community and quality efforts across 90+ offices. Having served as a lead client partner for some of the firm’s largest clients, he has advised companies through significant global change – including business model reinvention, public offerings, acquisitions and divestitures – driving trust within the capital markets. Griggs also co-leads My+, the firm’s people strategy that empowers PwC’s 75,000 people to develop and grow their careers, including upskilling the entire workforce on generative AI.

“Paul has been instrumental in advancing the firm’s growth,” said Tyson Cornell, U.S. Board of Partners and Principals chair. “He has led our strategy execution across our markets and has co-led the transformation of our people experience, focused on creating a more tech-enabled and personalized experience en masse. Both have resulted in enhancing our client experience. He also has an incredible understanding of the important role the firm plays within the capital markets. His dedication to our clients and people – combined with his breadth of experience, commitment to innovation and deep regulatory knowledge –positions Paul as a great leader to take the firm forward.”

Griggs, the U.S. Senior Partner-elect, said, “We are in an era of reinvention, with many companies looking to transform their businesses through data, AI and other advancing technologies while also building greater trust with stakeholders and upholding the integrity of the capital markets. Our purpose and strategy get at the heart of these goals.”

Griggs will succeed Tim Ryan, who has served as U.S. senior partner since 2016. Ryan will retire from the firm at the end of his term on June 30, concluding a 35-year career at PwC.
