E&Y takes on 17 partners across UK


& Young
has admitted 17 new partners across the firm in all service
lines and industry sectors as well as up and down the UK.

Mark Otty, Ernst & Young UK chairman and managing partner northern
Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (NEMIA), said the firm was ‘very
confident’ in its future growth prospects after recording close to 50% growth
over the last three years and exceptional growth across the NEMIA area where
India, South Africa and the Middle East increased revenues by more than 40% in
2007 alone.

‘Our global strategy of twinning more mature markets with emerging ones and
our unique NEMIA operating model are widely acknowledged as a powerful approach
and have cemented our reputation for providing exceptional services to clients,
’ Otty said.

‘As well as promoting from within we have also made a major investment in
direct entry partners. The firm has built itself a deserved reputation for not
only promoting quality candidates internally but attracting the brightest and
the best from the external market place. We expect to make plenty more of these
appointments throughout 2008.’
