PwC US, a member of the PricewaterhouseCoopers network, has signed a 10.5-year lease in the First Bank & Trust Tower on Poydras Street and will move to its new offices in late October.

The professional services firm sought out the building to accommodate the expected increase in the demand for its accounting, tax and consulting services, said Kathy Nieland, site leader for PwC New Orleans. PwC plans to increase its workforce to handle that growth.
