Eamonn Rice leaves E&Y's Scottish office

High-profile accountant departs with 'immediate effect' to pursue other career interests

One of Scotland’s most high-profile accountants, Eamonn Rice, has announced
he is to leave Ernst & Young with ‘immediate effect’.

The financial services guru said he was leaving to pursue ‘other’ career
interests and would not be competing with E&Y.

The Irishman told The Herald newspaper: ‘I’ve been doing more or
less the same job for the last 15 years. Working with Scottish Financial
Enterprise on their awards schemes has reminded me there is more to life than
consulting. The E&Y business is in great shape and has been left in very
capable hands.’

The paper said the 100-strong Edinburgh-based financial services team had
increased revenues by more than 50% since Rice joined three years ago.

Rice declined to comment on his plans, but there are rumours he is planning a
start-up business.
