PWC Lands High Profile Client Advisor

Bill Archer, former chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee and Texas Congressman for the past thirty years, has joined PricewaterhouseCoopers as a senior policy advisor. Archer will provide advice to the firm's clients on Federal policy matters and will also focus on trade and international tax issues. He will work with the firm's international offices and global clients on a wide variety of issues facing multinational corporations.

Archer will be based in Washington, DC in the firm's Washington National Tax Services (WNTS) practice. Due to his extensive visibility and contacts in the Houston area, where he has represented the Seventh Congressional District since 1971, Archer will help the PricewaterhouseCoopers office there build stronger relationships with local companies.

"Bill Archer's experience and distinguished record of accomplishments in Congress and as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee will add a new dimension to the services we provide our clients and will also help our firm better deal with Federal policy issues," said Samuel A. DiPiazza, Jr., U.S. chairman and senior partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. "This is a new position within our firm, which we created to take advantage of Bill's special qualifications and vast experience in the tax arena."
