Global professional services firm PwC has made a new appointment to its senior ranks in Nigeria, having appointed Tolu Adeleke as a new Partner. Adeleke has been at the firm for over a decade, occupying various roles and serving a number of clients across the public and private sectors.

PwC has been making a number of changes to its operations across Nigeria, as it looks to become an integral part of the country’s growth story. Nigeria is among the largest economies in Africa and is set to become a major driver for economic growth across the region.

PwC has been investing in the country to help facilitate this growth, having recently established an Innovation and Learning Centre in the country to help bring the country’ economic profile in line with global demands. This includes greater focus on the digital sphere.

Tolu Adeleke will now be among the leadership that is looking to bolster this presence across the country. Adeleke is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Nigeria, and has been with PwC for over a decade. He has most recently led the Assurance practice at the firm’s Abuja office. 

Adeleke will continue in this role in his new position as Partner, while simultaneously engaging with the firm’s other practices to help drive overall growth. His work will not only be limited to clients in Nigeria, but will also extend across West Africa.

Adeleke’s role also includes supporting the firm with developing new service lines, which are better aligned with global trends as well as trends within Nigeria.

This is a tremendous achievement and the start of a new career journey.
