PwC appoints US Compliance Services leader


Jerry Stone, who most recently served as both an executive for a regulated health services organization and a corporate board member, has joined PwC US as a risk assurance partner. Stone will lead the US Compliance Services group as part of the firm's recently launched Performance Governance, Risk and Compliance (PGRC) practice.

Based in Baltimore, Stone is responsible for providing organizations with innovative solutions to unite value protection and value creation and to reduce risk and support growth. His areas of focus within the practice include corporate, regulatory and conflict minerals compliance, in addition to managed monitoring and testing services.

In this role, Stone will work closely with Brian Schwartz, PwC Performance GRC Practice Leader, in an effort to identify and develop organizations' strategic opportunities while implementing a more effective early-warning system for emerging risk issues.

PwC's new offering has consolidated its solutions into a single, holistic platform, reconfiguring resources to focus on how best to assist companies in optimizing and integrating their GRC frameworks across four product areas: Risk Management Services, Compliance Services, Business Continuity Management Services and GRC Technology Enablement Services.

"At PwC, we are committed to investing in resources and talent to further drive our clients' business strategies by addressing the multidirectional business, technical and regulatory changes that are impacting organizations today," said Schwartz. "As an industry veteran, Jerry has honed his expertise in the GRC field and demonstrated his far-reaching capabilities to deliver risk assurance, audit and advisory services to organizations across a variety of highly regulated sectors including healthcare, health insurance, technology and government services. We welcome Jerry in joining our Performance GRC team."
