E&Y appoints youngest ever partner

Tracy Wood has become the youngest partner in Ernst & Young’s history.

Wood, a 28-year-old tax adviser from Manchester, has been promoted to partner
after four years at the firm.

In 2004 she reached the finals of Accountancy Age’s accountant of
the year competition, and won ProManchester and North West Business Insider’s
young professional of the year award.

David Brewin, head of tax for Ernst & Young in the north and partner at
the firm’s Manchester office, said: ‘Tracy’s drive, enthusiasm and ambition have
seen her quickly rise through the ranks and I am confident she will continue to
be a considerable asset to this firm as a result of her professional talent and
infectious desire to perform at the highest level.’
