Accenture Interactive founder Tim Breene has joined PCB Partners as a Strategic Advisor. He will now work with the firm’s Board to support with its global expansion plans.

PCB Partners provides buy-side and sell-side services, with a focus on disruptive technologies, digital transformation, management consulting and creative marketing services businesses. In order to achieve its objectives, it was important for PCB to hire outside of traditional M&A staff and attract entrepreneurs who had first-hand experience of buying and selling their own companies. 

The latest example of this policy is Tim Breene, who joins the firm following his recent retirement as CEO of World Relief. He has now been formally appointed by PCB Partners as Senior Advisor to support the leadership team with its global expansion plans.
