The research of the Chief Economist Office contributes internally to a better knowledge and understanding of the subjects that are high on the agenda of our clients and relations. By publishing our research reports on our website and other channels, we also want to share our knowledge with society and contribute to the public debate on important issues.
Jan Willem Velthuijsen has been chief economist of PwC since 2014. He initiates and leads PwC research on topics that affect both society and our clients. Jan Willem spent much of his career working at the intersection of science and business, as a professor in Amsterdam and Groningen and as a partner in Advisory.
'Science enables you to do independent research, to keep up with the latest developments in your field. Advisory provided the opportunity to apply the knowledge and science you have gained in practice', says Jan Willem. He now combines the best of these two worlds in his position of chief economist.
