A Queen's University graduate from Belfast has been appointed to one of the biggest jobs in global financial services.

Martyn Curragh starts a new role as new chief finance officer of PwC US in July. The east Belfast man relocated to New York with PwC in 1998 and took on the job of US deals leader in 2010.

Mr Curragh, who's married with a family, is also a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland.

PwC said: "Martyn has distinguished himself as a seasoned deal specialist with extensive experience in global and cross border deals, having served numerous private equity and corporate clients in the US and around the world."

Mr Curragh attended Grosvenor High School before his degree in economics at Queen's. After graduating in 1985, he spent some time working at Invest NI predecessor the Industrial Development Board (IDB), before a stint in corporate banking at Northern Bank.
