EY announces raft of global appointments

EY has announced three senior appointments in its global business, with two long-serving staff moving to global vice chair roles.

Jay Nibbe was named global vice chair for tax, moving from his previous roles as chair of EY’s global accounts committee and deputy area managing partner for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA).

The position sees Nibbe, who joined EY in 1985, head up more than 35,000 tax professionals in EY’s international network. He will continue as a member of EY’s highest management body, the global executive.

Uschi Schreiber has been appointed as Nibbe’s successor as chair of the global accounts committee, in addition to a role as global vice chair of markets. Schreiber joins the global executive for the first time, after previously heading up EY’s government and public sector practice for the last four years. She will remain in post as EY global markets leader.

George Atalla has joined EY to fill Schreiber’s role as global sector leader in its government and public sector practice. Atalla most recently served as partner and vice president at Booz & Company, which saw him head up the Middle East and Africa government and public sector division.

The latest announcements follow EY’s promotion of 675 employees to partner positions internationally, marking the largest number of partner appointments in the firm’s history.
