Nordberg boosts EY financial services team
EY has expanded its financial services team in Scotland with the appointment of Charlotte Nordberg as director of client services for Scotland and North England.
Based in Edinburgh, Ms Nordberg, who has 20 years of industry and management consultancy experience, will manage the relationships of EY’s mid-tier banking clients.
Her appointment highlights the continued growth of EY’s financial services team in Scotland, with staff numbers in this practice increasing by 80 – more than 40% – between 2014 and 2015.
She says: “Having worked in the financial services industry, I bring first-hand knowledge of the challenges and constraints experienced by our clients. I understand their aspirations to succeed in a sector that thrives on innovation.
“I am thrilled to be joining EY’s growing financial services practice in Scotland, especially at a time when the market is so demanding.
“Financial services firms are currently facing increasing regulation and competition, greater customer expectations coupled with declining customer loyalty, as well as necessary cost reduction and the threat of cybercrime.
“At this time it is important that strategic investment continues, and I am excited to join EY as they grow their service offerings to better support their clients.”
George Reid, partner and head of financial services at EY in Scotland added: “Charlotte’s appointment demonstrates EY’s commitment to growth within Scotland’s financial services sector and our dedication to driving success in this industry.
“It comes at a time when financial services professionals continue to negotiate a number of challenges, including shifting customer expectations, meeting continuously changing regulatory requirements and responding to an increased demand for digital innovation.”
