New global chairman at E&Y

Jim Turley has moved one step up the ladder at Big Five firm Ernst & Young after taking over from Phillip Laskawy as global chairman.

Turley, 46, took over the helm at E&Y yesterday after serving exactly one year as deputy chairman and chairman-elect. He succeeded Laskawy, who retired on 30 June after spending 40 years at the firm, the last seven years as chairman.

Commenting on his appointment, Turley said he was excited to have the opportunity to lead E&Y during a period of dynamic change in the profession.

‘As chairman, I plan to aggressively implement our new strategic vision for the future and unleash the tremendous power of our people on a global basis,’ he said.

Turley has a long association with the firm, having joined in 1977, becoming a partner in 1987. Among the posts he has held are national director of client services and business development and director of entrepreneurial services. In 1994, having moved to the St Louis office, he was appointed Upper Midwest managing partner and in 1998 he was named managing partner for New York.

Laskawy said of his successor: ‘I look forward to Jim Turley’s leadership. He represents the experience, energy, and dedication that will carry E&Y forward to continued growth and success.’
