Crowe Poaches Someone From EY and Issues a Press Release

In an unusually humble press release that doesn’t use the words “leading accounting and advisory firm” in the first sentence like every other firm does, Crowe announced announced the hiring of Mike Edwards as the next managing principal of Consulting. When he assumes the role on April 1, he’ll be leading a practice that consists of 150 partners and 2,000 professionals.

Of note, and barely mentioned in the press release, is Edwards’ prior gig:

Edwards joins Crowe from EY, where he began his career and most recently served as Americas, Consumer Industry Supply Chain Leader. In addition to his work with EY, he also served as a senior leader of supply chain improvement with General Mills. Edwards received his BBA from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Indiana University.

His LinkedIn is conveniently linked in the announcement:

Wow, that’s a direct yoink from EY. Nice.

“I am thrilled to join Crowe, a firm with an impeccable reputation built on culture and values,” Edwards allegedly said. “Every interaction I’ve had with people in the firm has demonstrated that the reputation they’ve earned is well founded and very real.”
