Eight-strong team to run E&Y, with roles for Robin Heath and E&Y's Equitable legal counsel

E&Y building

Mark Otty, the chairman-elect of Ernst & Young, has named an eight-strong
leadership team.

Robin Heath, who was also on Nick Land’s smaller council of advisers, remains
on the team as head of operational and finance services.

Victoria Cochrane, E&Y’s general counsel and credited with leading the
firm’s successful defence against the Equitable lawsuit, is also part of the new
team.

Steve Varley, the 37-year-old head of E&Y’s new advisory practice, joins
with a brief to lead special projects.

Mike Cullen, talked of as a potential rival to Otty at one stage in the
election process, gets a role heading up People and Accounts, whilst Jan Babiak,
currently head of the Technology and Security Risk Services Practice, becomes
head of Regulatory and Public Policy.

Richard King, Tom McGrath and Francis Small will head up ‘strategic growth
markets’, ‘client service and accounts’ and ‘industrial, commercial and
government’ roles respectively.
