The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has recruited Ernst & Young head of
security Björn Conway to newly formed Defence Reform Unit.
The unit, chaired by Lord Peter Levene, will oversee a review of how the MoD
is structured and managed.
Björn Conway joined Ernst & Young as a partner in September 2008 and is
now head of Aerospace, Defence, Security and Resilience, focusing on assurance,
tax and advisory services in the sector.
Conway said this was an “unprecedented” time for defence with the ongoing
operations in Afghanistan to support and huge government spending cuts.
“While this puts immense pressure on the Ministry of Defence it also
provides a very clear signal of the need to review how the ministry goes about
its business and ask some fundamental questions,” he said.
The unit will have to come up with a reform outline by September 2011.
