Anita Gray

Head of Finance


There are few more respected companies than PWC – Anita’s 20 years there has given her a near-unequalled insight into financial management. But as qualified Pharmacist and a member of the GPhC (General Pharmaceutical Council), she’s also deeply embedded in the world of pharmacology. No wonder then that she describes her role at the PDS as “the perfect job.”
