Noble and Gill among new EY partners
They are also among 41 internal promotions. The remainder have joined from competitors and industry.
EY also promoted 63 associate partners, including six in Scotland, taking its total partner promotions from 1 July to 134.
Ms Noble is an audit partner, having joined the firm in 2005 as a graduate following a six week placement as a summer intern the previous year.
She is the eighth woman to join the firm’s partnership in Scotland in the last four years which means 62% of new equity partners in Scotland since 2015 have been female. The proportion of female partners in Scotland has also increased to a new record high from 32% last year to 41%.
Mr Gill is an advisory partner within the energy practice with a focus on power and utilities after joining the firm in 2013 with a previous 11 years of industry experience.
Mark Harvey, senior partner, Scotland, said: “The appointment of Gemma and Dan are a reflection of both their individual skills, as well as the investments we are making in our business here in Scotland.
“The future of our business, and others, depends on our ability to be innovative in an incredibly fast paced world. To make that happen we must have a workforce that has diversity of thought, perspectives, experiences and skills.
“I am particularly pleased to see efforts to diversify our leadership are making a difference with a further increase the representation of women in our partnership in Scotland. This is in addition to half of our senior leadership roles in Scotland being fulfilled by women.”
Senior partner Derek Leith has been promoted to global oil and gas tax lead after holding a similar role in the UK for 10 years.
The six promoted to associate partner in Scotland are: Alan Campbell in tax; Oli Henderson in transaction advisory services; Scott Kenyon, Gary Logan and Tony McCormack in advisory; and David Storrie in people advisory services.
