EY strengthens UK partnership with new equity partners

New cohort includes 75 internal promotions and 45 external hires – EY’s largest ever number of new Equity Partner appointments in the UK.

Bi Four accounting firm EY has expanded its UK partnership with the promotion of 75 equity partners and 45 external hires. 

Marking its largest-ever cohort of equity partners in the UK. This builds on two years of recorded growth, following the appointment of 103 equity partners in 2021.

The new appointments reflect the firm’s increased investment in its sectors, service lines and regional business, including in areas such as audit, technology consulting, its global strategy consulting arm EY-Parthenon, financial services, sustainability, energy and consumer products.

With this year’s equity partner appointments, this change brings EY’s total UK partner number to 1,523.

The appointments will “create career opportunities for EY’s people and attract talent with the skills needed to win in an evolving market, particularly in fast-growing areas such as sustainability and technology”. 

Hywel Ball, EY’s UK chair, said: “Our new partner appointments reflect a significant investment in our people and business as we seek to meet growing client demand. With companies facing a convergence of challenges, from climate change and the pandemic to economic uncertainty and shifting consumer habits, we’re investing in the talent and skills needed to help our clients transform.

“Elevating the associate partner role is also a particularly special moment as we recognise the contribution of our exceptional and talented colleagues. This is a great opportunity for us and one that really underlines our commitment to our people’s careers while meeting the needs of our clients.”

He added: “Overall, today’s announcement reflects that we’re investing across all parts of our business and across all parts of the UK.”
