He will work closely with PwC’s tax leader for the North, Martin Hodgson.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Hodgson said: “This appointment reflects our strategy of building the right team of specialists so that we can continue to help our clients be successful. The experience that Kit has acquired from his time in London, combined with his knowledge of the region gained through much of his career here, will benefit our clients and shows our commitment to recruit and retain the best talent. It is testament to the strength of our practice, and Northern Powerhouse region as a whole, that we are able to attract industry leaders to the North West.”
Mr Dickson said: “It’s an exciting time for the region, with Manchester at the forefront of the devolution agenda, development of Airport City making it the international gateway to the North, an increased level of M&A activity and inwards investment in recent months. The opportunity to return to such a dynamic marketplace was too good to miss and I am looking forward to working with Martin and the team at PwC to help support both new and existing clients with their growth ambitions.”
