Record investment in partners for EY Scotland

EY partnersEY has announced the largest ever round of new partners in its Scotland practice, reflecting the strength of the economy.

It has appointed seven partners and three associate partners to its Scottish practice, increasing the  total across its four offices to 32.

Eight are promotions and two are international transfers from Australia and the US. Half of those promoted are women.  EY has also announced five executive director appointments.

Mark Harvey, partner and market leader of EY Scotland, said:  “Our capacity to make such a significant investment into our business is a result of recent market success.

“We have a strong pipeline of high quality people who have a wealth of experience and talent, to not only grow our business but also support the growth of our country’s businesses both domestically and internationally.”

Earlier this year, EY appointed Partner Donald Forsyth to its Inverness office and Mr Harvey confirmed that other partner appointments are expected this year.

The firm is channelling its growth into the expansion of all four of its core service lines – assurance, tax, transactions and advisory – and market-focused areas including financial services, government and public sector, oil and gas and entrepreneurial businesses.

George Reid, EY partner and head of financial services in Scotland, said: “Our financial services business is experiencing particular growth as a result of our response to EU audit reform.”
