Feargal O’Rourke (Managing Partner, PwC Ireland)

Feargal O’Rourke is PwC Ireland’s Senior Partner and is a member of the PwC Leadership Team.

He has been the head of PwC Ireland’s Tax and Legal Services practice since 1 January 2011. He has played a major role in the Irish Tax policy debate during that time and shared platforms with Irish and foreign politicians as well as key OECD tax officials.

He has also served in various leadership roles in PwC EMEA and PwC Ireland since his admission as a partner in 1996.

He has been appointed by a number of Irish Governments to various tax and tax related roles.

He served for 7 years on the board of Forfás, the Irish State body responsible for the development of Industrial policy and the development of science and technology in Ireland, having been appointed by the Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment in 1998.

In 2004 he was appointed by the Minister for Finance as one of Ireland’s “independent persons of standing” under the terms of the EU Double Taxation Arbitration Convention, a position which he still holds.

Feargal was appointed by the Irish Government in February 2008 as the only Big 4 representative to the 18 person Commission on Taxation. The Commission was asked to review and report back on the structure, efficiency and appropriateness of the Irish tax system and to look specifically at issues such as securing the 12.5% rate of taxation and carbon taxation. The background to, and work of, the Commission can be viewed at http://www.taxcommission.ie/ Many of the recommendations proposed by the Commission have now been implemented.

In 2014, Feargal was appointed to the board of directors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland which is the representative body for the 700 US companies based in Ireland at both Government and Industry level. As part of this role, he chairs the Taxation working group.

He works primarily in the Foreign Direct Investment sector of PwC and advises US companies establishing their operations in Ireland and Europe.

He holds a First Class Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree from University College Dublin and also holds the Diploma in Professional Accounting from that University. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland and an Associate of the Irish Taxation Institute, having obtained 1st place nationally in the final exam.

He has lectured and written extensively on taxation matters and is a frequent commentator in the media on the subject.
