EY has chosen Jeff Wong to lead its global innovation team.

In his new role, Wong will lead the newly-formed team through the development of new technologies and strategies.

Wong leaves eBay, where he served for ten years on the marketplaces strategy team and as a senior executive and founder of the Business Incubation Group, to join the Big Four member firm.

His career began at the Boston Consulting Group before moving at JAFCO America Venture and JP Morgan Partners. Wong has launched and built new businesses across various concepts including local commerce, B2B exchange and services.

Global CEO and chairman of EY, Mark Weinberger, said of the appointment: “I am excited to have Jeff Wong on board to start-up and lead EY’s innovation team. Jeff will take his experience and insights to challenge everything from the way we do business to the way we innovate with our clients.”

Wong said: “This is an exciting opportunity and time to be able to drive innovation, and EY has one of the most globally integrated platforms of any organisation to accomplish this.”

Carmine Di Sibio, Global Managing partner for client service at EY, added: “EY is making a bold statement with Jeff’s appointment. He brings greater connectivity and new ways of thinking to the organisation, and will help drive greater results to EY and our clients.”
