E&Y appoints new ‘buy-out’ chief

Appointment signals growing interest in private equity work

Big Four firm Ernst & Young has appointed Simon Perry to the
newly-created role of global private equity leader.

Perry, a partner since 1988, was most recently managing partner of the firm’s
transaction advisory services unit.

He will be based in London but will work with global colleagues to develop E
&Y’s private equity business.

Speaking after his appointment, Perry said: ‘The industry is vital and
dynamic and I am looking forward to my new role.’

The move mirrors KPMG’s decision last May to appoint Oliver Tant as its new
global head of financial advisory services at KPMG, while retaining his position
as global head of private equity.
