New infra head for PwC

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has appointed a new head of capital projects and infrastructure for the US.

Peter Raymond, based in the Virginia office, will work alongside Richard Abadie - PwC’s newly appointed global infrastructure leader – to lead the firm’s strategic efforts in assisting clients to design, deliver, finance and manage large scale infrastructure projects.

He has more than 20 years of US and international experience advising clients on road, port, airport, rail, power, telecom and water transactions. In addition to his new role, he will continue to be responsible for PwC’s US Public Sector Financial Services practice where he leads a large team assisting US federal agencies with financial stabilisation efforts.

Raymond holds degrees from Georgetown University in Washington, DC and Union College in New York. In 2010 he was honoured by Consulting magazine in its annual listing of the "Top 25 Consultants" and recognised for excellence in the Public Sector category.

Raymond is succeeding Carter Pate, who has recently retired.
