Andy Baldwin, your table is ready.
EY today announces that Andy Baldwin has been appointed the next EY Global Managing Partner – Client Service, effective from 1 July 2019. In this role, Baldwin will be responsible for leading the go-to-market and client activities. He will also have overall leadership for the three EY geographic areas and four service lines which include 200,000 client servers who are focused on delivering exceptional service.
Baldwin, a 21-year veteran of EY, will succeed Carmine Di Sibio as global managing partner for client service on July 1—the same day Di Sibio will take over as EY global chairman and CEO.
Mark Weinberger announced in early December that he would be stepping down on June 30 after a seven-year run as global chairman and CEO.
Di Sibio, who joined the firm in 1985, has been global managing partner for client service since 2013.
For the past three years, Baldwin has held the post of EY Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) area managing partner.
He previously held the role of regional managing partner for the EY financial services organization in EMEIA, which included overseeing operations in 14 different markets. Baldwin also served as chairman of EY Global FSO.
During his tenure with EY, he has served as a senior advisor for many of EY’s largest clients, the firm said.
Di Sibio said he’s confident EY didn’t screw up by naming Baldwin as his successor.
“He has played a key part in the formulation of our global strategic priorities and the creation of new technology-enabled services. Andy has also put our priorities into execution in a big, complex market landscape across EMEIA. I look forward to working more closely with Andy in his new capacity and to his continued success.”
