PwC has boosted its Education Strategy business with the appointment of Ian Koxvold as the Lead of the practice. The appointment follows PwC’s ambition to further develop its education strategy sector and the addition of Koxvold is expected to provide the firm with more value and insight for its clients.
Ian Koxvold joins PwC from Cairneagle Associates, where he has worked for almost 8 years as Partner and Head of the Education Practice, a practice he established and developed. Prior to joining Cairneagle Associates in 2008, Koxvold worked for IT services firm Opera Solutions as Engagement Manager for just under two years. Between 2005 and 2006, he was a Senior Consultant at CIL and between 2003 and 2005 a Senior Associate at Tyler & Company.
Koxvold started his career as Consultant at Credo in 1999 and holds a Master degree in Engineering from Queens’ College, University of Cambridge.
As the new Head of the Education Strategy practice, Koxvold will be responsible for both transaction-related work and corporate strategy development. According to Nick George, Head of TMT for Strategy and Transactions Services at PwC, Koxvold’s addition brings a wealth of commercial experience and strategic leadership to the firm. “Ian’s appointment will allow us to provide more value and insight to our clients and drive further growth and development for the firm in this important sector,” George says.
Commenting on his move to PwC, Koxvold says: “I am really excited about joining PwC to develop their position in this exciting field. The education sector is transforming rapidly to support increasingly aspirational cohorts, spurred on by a growing sense that education is the key to individual and societal success. It is a privilege to be able to work with organisations that help so many young people.”
