EY names new UK&I consumer products & retail market leader

Previously, Mace was the tax market segment leader for consumer products and retail, advising UK consumer brands for over 25 years

EY has announced the appointment of Amber Mace as the firm’s new UK and Ireland (UK&I) market segment leader for its consumer products and retail sector, effective immediately. 

In her new role, Mace will lead a multi-disciplinary team of over 1,000 EY professionals to help meet demand from businesses in the sector that are navigating challenges in the market, including supply chain disruption.

Previously, Mace was the tax market segment leader for consumer products and retail, advising UK consumer brands for over 25 years.

She has advised on post deal integration, group financing, and UK inward investment transactions and international tax – including M&A and internal global restructuring transactions.

Mace said: “The consumer products and retail sector is facing numerous disruptive forces, including inflationary cost pressures, trade and transport challenges, and the need to have an agile, resilient and digitally connected supply chain, to respond to a consumer that is more demanding than ever of value, with an increased desire for strong green credentials. 

“I am very proud to be taking over the leadership of this sector, building on the momentum we have already created. We have a growing, multi-disciplinary team that is helping businesses in the sector to address this myriad of challenges they are facing, while supporting them to achieve their purpose for all their stakeholders.”

Alison Kay, UK&I managing partner for client service, added: “Amber brings a wealth of experience to a sector which is undergoing structural change and facing significant headwinds.

“Many organisations are finding it difficult to drive their growth agenda whilst expanding their margins and, at the same time, contending with competition from non-traditional players. That is why it is so important that we have a sector team, led by Amber, dedicated to solving our clients’ most pressing challenges, with deep insight and tailored capability.”
