PwC has tapped the current Director of its Operational Excellence Group to lead PwC Ukraine as a Director of the firm’s operations in that country.
For the past two years, he has worked in the firm’s Central European practice with a focus on restructuring projects across sectors. McDaniel has a career that spans three decades in the advisory and consulting industry, and he has worked throughout Eastern Europe. In the late 1990’s, he was an assistant manager of KPMG’s Moscow practice after volunteering for the MBA Enterprise Corps, an expert network of consultants that provide support to local businesses and institutions.
After leaving KPMG, McDaniel worked briefly at Ernst & Young and then Deloitte, where he was a consultant and project manager. At KPMG he was the Program Director of the firm’s Thought Leadership Initiative for the firm’s Central and Eastern European practice, while also teaching at the Central European University Business School. He still teaches courses in operations management, supply chain management, sustainable development, and project management for the school in addition to his work at PwC.
