JERSEY CITY, N.J. | New Jersey City University (NJCU) has announced that Will Eaves, a Trust Solutions Partner in PwC's Digital Assurance and Transparency practice in New York, has been appointed to the NJCU Foundation Board of Directors earlier this semester.

Eaves specializes in governance, regulatory and risk controls functions spanning business operations and technology at asset managers, private wealth managers, broker-dealers and domestic and global banks. His experience includes serving publicly traded financial services organizations by helping them achieve their financial and regulatory reporting needs, while also delivering independent trust and transparency reporting for various types of service organizations.

Eaves has spent his entire career at PwC, serving U.S. and global clients. A dynamic leader focused on building inclusive, trust-based teams to solve challenging and important issues, he currently serves as the lead Human Resources and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion partner for his New York practice. While based out of the New York office, he has extensive experience working across the global PwC network, including three years at the PwC London location from 2009-2012.

He is a licensed CPA in New York and New Jersey and holds a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification.

Peter Hernandez, the Chairman of the NJCU Foundation Board of Directors, said: “I am pleased to welcome Will to the Board this fall. His previous commitment to serving in a leadership capacity to benefit those in need — particularly the Saint Peter's Orphanage — and his perspective in governance, risk, and regulatory matters, will be impactful to the Foundation.”

Eaves said: “I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve on the Foundation’s board and support the goal of providing an excellent education to a diverse population of future leaders. I am the product of various non-profit and public educational opportunities that created unimaginable opportunities for me to succeed beyond my dreams. I am excited to pay a small portion of these opportunities back in service to the NJCU Foundation.”

A native of Queens, N.Y., Eaves received his B.S. from the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia. He is a member of various professional organizations (e.g., AICPA, NJCPA, NYSSCPA, ISACA, NABA). Eaves serves on the board of Saint Peter's Orphanage and is an active, lifetime member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. He resides in New Jersey with his wife and their young son. Eaves’ personal interests include active outdoor activities — including golf, running, skiing — as well as travel and food.
