The article describes a discussion with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) chairman Kieran Poynter. Poynter does not resent the fact that his counterpart at Deloitte is paid substantially more than him. His firm's new business complex, slated for completion in 2011, will incorporate state-of-the-art "green" technologies. PwC does not feel compelled to follow the consolidation strategy of some of its rivals.
