PwC has appointed Alan McCrae as their new energy (oil and gas) leader in the UK.
With a career spanning over 28 years, Alan was previously energy tax leader across PwC’s UK, European, Middle East and Africa territories. During this time, he worked with a wide range of energy, utility and mining companies, advising them on international tax structuring, cross-border deals and joint ventures. He was also a member of the UK’s Oil Industry Tax Committee.
With a 360 strong team of specialists both in London and Aberdeen – the ‘energy capital’ of the UK – PwC’s oil and gas practice provides a wide range of services including assurance and audit, tax, consulting, corporate finance and legal.
According to Alan, the combination of extensive experience and a strong pipeline of talent puts the practice in pole position to offer industry stakeholders and companies the support, expertise and knowledge needed to meet a wide range of future challenges from oilfield digitisation to decommissioning:
“Our 15 year lease of the newly transformed £30m modern Capitol building, with its cutting-edge communications, office facilities and security, has undoubtedly reaffirmed our commitment to Aberdeen.
“And despite the lower for longer environment in recent years, we’ve been fortunate to be able to recruit and retain the best people across our UK team, a trend we’re looking to continue over the next 12-18 months in line with our plans to significantly grow the team.”
