Ewing, the former finance director of BAA, is in talks with her old firm
Deloitte about a possible return, Accountancy Age can reveal.
Ewing, who worked at Deloitte for more than a decade in its corporate finance
department, told Accountancy Age this week that she was in talks with
the firm. ‘I come from Deloitte and they’re one of the firms I’m considering.
But discussions are ongoing, and I have been looking at a number of different
things, including plcs and private equity houses. At this point in time, nothing
is firm,’ said Ewing.
Recruitment sources have indicated that Ewing could easily take on a number
of senior FTSE 100 finance roles, such is her experience. The FD last week
scooped the gong for Blue Chip FD of the year at the Accountancy Age Awards.
Ewing and BAA chief executive Mike Clasper have drawn praise for exacting the
highest possible price for the company in its sale to Spanish group Ferrovial.
Ewing joined BAA as group FD in July 2002. She is a former group FD at
Trinity Mirror, and before that was a senior partner at Deloitte.
Ewing was a corporate finance partner at Deloitte before joining Trinity
Mirror, and worked on some major deals including the Vodafone takeover of
Mannesman in Germany.
She is one of only a few senior female FDs, alongside Helen Weir and Alison
Reed, who recently left Standard Life.
