Consultancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers India (PwC) today said Deepak Kapoor will take over as chairman of the company next year.
“Deepak Kapoor has been elected as the new chairman of the PwC India network of entities for a three-year term beginning 1 January 2011,” a PwC India release said.
Mr Kapoor will take over the role from Gautam Banerjee, the current chairman, who will relinquish office on 31 December 2010.
Mr Banerjee would, however, continue in his role as executive chairman of PwC Singapore and would join the PwC India Advisory Board.
The selection of Mr Kapoor, 52, has been ratified by PwC’s India Governance Board.
As the chairman of PwC, Mr Kapoor would be responsible for managing PwC India network firms’ business in India and would represent them externally and internally and lead the interactions with clients and people within the firm.
