Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa region for PwC France gets new head

Nadine Tinen has been named Regional Senior Partner of PwC Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa, thus also joining the Territory Leadership Team for PwC France & Francophone Africa. Appointed on 1 July 2017, she takes over from Edouard Messou before the end of December.

Nadine Tinen, 45, is a graduate of the University of Bourgogne (Dijon), where she earned a DESS postgraduate diploma in tax law, a Magistère specialised postgraduate diploma in corporate law, tax and accounting and an international diploma in European tax law (Diplôme International de Droit Fiscal Européen).

Specialising in tax, Nadine has become well-known over her 20 years in the field for her expert advice to businesses.

Nadine began her career in 1996 at PwC Cameroon and was admitted as a partner 10 years later. In 2010, she took over the Firm’s Cameroon practice and, in 2014, joined the Leadership Team for PwC Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa as Tax & Legal Leader, responsible for legal and tax advisory services.

Speaking on her appointment, Nadine said “Africa is a continent on the move, with an important role to play in the future of global affairs. In 2050, Africa will represent 12% of global wealth. Demographic, economic and social change is underway on the continent, and it’s happening now. This is why we need to work with the stakeholders in African development – spanning society, local communities and national, pan-African and even international businesses – to help them carry out their projects, from the initial strategy phase right up to completion. We believe that helping these stakeholders grow will allow us to contribute toward the development and promotion of Africa as a whole”.

Already, Nadine Tinen has brought together a new management team to take charge of the development of PwC’s business in the Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa region and help achieve the objectives set for the next five years.

The partners on the new management team include Souleymane Coulibaly Soro, Assurance Leader; Laurent Pommera, Tax & Legal Leader; Georges-Louis Levard, Advisory Coordination Leader; and Didier Nguessan, Human Capital Leader.
