PwC appoints Vicky Parker as energy and resources leader

The firm said Parker brings a ‘wealth of experience’ across major infrastructure projects including advising on investment into UK nuclear new build and decommissioning

PwC has appointed Vicky Parker, a “passionate advocate” of sustainable decarbonisation across the energy industry, as its new UK Energy, utilities and resources strategy and leader.

It revealed Parker brings over 15 years of industry experience, including nine years as a partner at KPMG, where she led the energy strategy team.

In her previous roles Parker advised clients on new portfolio strategies for international oil companies to support their transition to net zero and redefining the role of energy retail with a particular focus on the European and Asian markets.

According to the firm, Parker was also involved in the use of carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen in new sectors such as mining and power generation, as well as new nuclear and renewable investments.

PwC said Parker brings a “wealth of experience” across major infrastructure projects including advising on investment into UK nuclear new build and decommissioning.

Parker said: “It’s clear the world is watching and expecting change with an imperative to act. As Sir David Attenborough said in his speech we must ‘turn tragedy into triumph’. Companies and leaders must deliver on this – we cannot afford to fail.

“The transformation required is enormous; I look forward to working with the teams at PwC to support our clients on this journey as they evolve and adapt to meet an ever more demanding investor and consumer landscape.”

Drew Stevenson, PwC UK’s energy, utilities and resources industry leader, added: “I am confident that she has the drive and experience to help our clients – and the broader industry – evolve and adapt to this changing landscape, and address the implications of reshaping portfolios, reallocating capital and investing in talent and systems to support change and growth.”
