PwC M&A specialist Pam Jackson named the City’s leading Woman in Business
Jackson, a partner in the Mergers and Acquisition Tax team at leading City firm, PwC, was recognised as the City accountancy profession’s Woman of Achievement earlier this month.
At a gathering of 300 of Britain's top businesswomen, the Award’s founder Gwen Rhys praised Pam's achievement, commenting: “We could not have chosen a better champion for promoting gender diversity and the reputation of women in senior positions everywhere. Pam’s vision and support have helped foster greater visibility and profile for women within PwC and encouraged more women to apply for senior positions.”
Jackson has done much to advance the progression of women within the firm, having been active in the PwC Women’s Network and founder of both the firm’s Female Partner and Director Group, and a successful and thriving company-wide mentoring scheme for women.
Ian Powell, chairman and senior partner, PwC said: "Pam has a remarkable record of achievement and contribution to our business and I'm delighted with this recognition for both her professional contribution, and her personal commitment to help progress more women in business.
“The City and our industry is lucky to have someone who sets such an outstanding example for commercial and personal achievement. She will be an inspiration to women not just in our business but across the City too."
Candidates for the Women in the City awards work in London’s main business hubs of Canary Wharf, the City and the West End.
On collecting her award, Jackson said: “I'm thrilled to win this fantastic award – not just for myself but because the enhanced publicity and profile gained through such awards do so much to encourage upcoming talent within our organisations, who need more role models to inspire them and give them the confidence they need to achieve everything that they are capable of."
