They help organisations and individuals create the value they are looking for, by delivering quality in assurance, tax and advisory services.
Lemasson is a member of the Consulting ExCo and focuses on helping large organisations translate their business objectives into strategies that maximise business impact.

Prior to joining PwC Lemasson worked for Capgemini where he spent eight years. “I learnt about technology usage and how technology can be a game changer. After those fantastic years, working on strategy and technology, I moved to PwC. All these years later I can now tell you that both functional and technology are related and without one the other cannot work.
Commenting on the impact of the pandemic he said that this is an “opportunity for organisations to renew or restart and build something new or different due to technology.
When asked what leader he admired and why, Lemasson said: “I can’t give only one name. I would say, a group of people, called the “surrealists” mainly focused on writing and painting. People like Malkine, Breton, Desnos, Aragon, Eluard because those people were always thinking out of the box, and this is my philosophy.”

“Our strategic approach was reinforced by the COVID-19 pandemic response - there was stronger national direction, digital and data were the main enablers, and all the emphasis was on prevention and on delivering services outside hospital, into communities and homes.”
