PwC names new Carolinas managing partner

Accounting and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers said Tuesday that it has named veteran Crawford Pounds to be the managing partner of the Carolinas region.

In the role, he'll oversee more than 900 people and four offices -- in Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro and Spartanburg, S.C. He'll continue to work in Charlotte.

Pounds started with PricewaterhouseCoopers in 1988 in Birmingham, Ala., before eventually coming to Charlotte in 2008. He most recently had been the assurance leader for the Carolinas, which makes sure business data is accurate and in context.

The firm also said that Mary Shelton Rose has been named advisory leader for the Carolinas and based in Charlotte. Her 230-person group deals with consulting and transactions.
